Abstract

Defining family psychology as a science and a profession, this article presents three core components of a scientific paradigm for family psychology. The three components-an underlying systems model, an emphasis on family and therapeutic process, and a commitment to theoretical and technical integration-provide conceptual and methodological guidelines for future work in family psychology.
