O znaczeniu modeli teoretycznych w badaniach rodziny


The aim of the article is to show the positive significance of family theories in examining family relations and family functioning and to present the most significant models in the area. Discussing the benefits resulting from using theoretical models in family researches it has been noted that they allow to identify factors essential to understand family relations and family functioning, they provide the supposed causal relationships between variables, they also equip researchers with the common academic language and allow for comparing results of different researches. They are also the basis of working out reliable and accurate research tools which can be used in clinical jobs and counselling.
Family theories have been discussed as being grouped according to Skelton and cooperators (2012) into three main categories: family as a system, family stress and resilience and families in time and space.
