Abstract

Family theories have been developed from Western communities to describe the functioning of families but are used in the treatment of families all over the World. Results in various studies reveal that stress contributes to the development of health/illness behaviours within the family. These theories have also been used in the training of therapists including those working with Xhosa families.
