This emotional deadness results in the problem expressed as a symptom Individual members are not able to pursue self-actualization/growth Family members avoid feelings and cling to routine

    19. Change according to Experiential theory Emotional experiencing-stimulate anxiety and emotion Acknowledge and appreciate uniqueness of each individual Identify ritualized roles-critical wife, ineffectual husband (p.285) Therapist battles for structure, the family becomes responsible for change
