Family and Primary School Counseling From a Systemic Perspective

陸方鈺儀(Pattie LUK)




Based upon the system approach of "person in context", this paper discusses the relationship between family and counseling in primary schools. The influences of the school system, the family system, the local and global environments on students' development in Hong Kong are first discussed. A conceptual framework is then proposed. Basic theories and techniques of family therapy, as well as their applications in school counseling, are also introduced for the reference of school counseling personnel and teachers. The paper concludes by emphasizing that to effectively implement counseling services in primary schools, the family system and the school system must be well-coordinated.
