Posted by Sylia on

The core content of the family guidance is based on the technical assistance provided to the family. As we have seen this help will vary depending on the situation which is passing the family, going from a more educational assistance or advice, levels where normally families have ability to solve their difficulties but need some issues professional orientation; to a therapeutic, in which the family system. is in an extreme situation or they are disconcerting and normally not able to develop a solution that allows them to change and improve. All families governed by a series of rules that allow you to advance and evolve towards a continuous opening, in which the balance (homeostasis) between the stable factors (morfoestaticos) and the factors that are likely to change (morphogenetic) make possible the progress of all members of the family system. A person who wants to work with families has taken into account a very important aspect of the previous paragraph. We know that families are subject to change, therefore is essential to know and specify as accurately as possible, what is that changes in it and what stays, i.e., what gives you stability and permanence and that which causes changes. According to Nike, who has experience with these questions. In all the families we will find a series of fixed factors (common and universal themes) are always going to give and then each one customized to their particular way of life.

The role of the educator will be clarifying and making present in orientation such factors. The educator must take into account some issues:-the resistance of the family orientation. Occurs mostly at the beginning of this that is when there is a greater degree of reticence (this feature will depend on the type of family, the reason or cause, time, economy, relations). -Neutrality of the counselor. The Counselor should see the family that is all but with none in particular. To work with neutrality, it is essential that the Counselor know and remember what their values and the values with which the family moves.

In these cases the values of the educator should serve to raise efficiency in the family and not controversy. This set of phenomena constitute stable of the family institution. And on this is what has to act the family educator.
