Module 2 1. how family approaches to risk and resilience differs from an individual approach- family’s do have unique systemic characteristics, this unity produces the family perception variable. For family stress management, a family perception is defined as the groups unified view of a particular stressor event or situation. There isn’t a collective view without the family meeting together. Their views must be analyzed as one rather than separate voices. Both understanding of the family view and individual view is necessary in order to get the whole family picture due to the variability of a family view and an individual view. Each person has their own view of what the situation is or means but hopefully the family will have an agreed upon collective perception. When family’s cant agree upon a collective perception they splinter after tragedy. Families can also develop agreed upon delusions. Focus on the family system should not come at the expenses of individuals within that system. Both levels family and individual are important to a meaningful family stress system. 2. the content (assumptions and key components), and application of four models of family stress/resilience (ABCX, Double ABCX, Contextual, FAAR) ABCX Content- heuristic model A- The provoking event or stressor

B- The family’s resources or strengths at the time of the event C- The meaning attached to the event by the family (individually and collectivity) (Symbolic interactionism) D- X- Degree of stress Double ABCX Precrisis crisis post crisis aA. Pile up bB. Existing and new resources cC. . In the Double ABCX Model, the c is the perception/definition of the stressor that led to the crisis. The C is the family’s perception/definition of the crisis, pileup, and existing and new resources. When the cC factor is positive, family members are better able to cope. The wives in the study gave positive meanings to their situations, such as “a challenge,” “an opportunity for growth,” or “the Lord’s will” Coping Adaption Contextual- Boss presents a contextual model of family stress and crisis. She emphasizes each family is unique and different, and therefore different families will experiences similar events in many different ways. Since families are so different, she shows an ‘umbrella-like’ theoretical framework that is broad and will work with many types of families in various cultures. There is no one type of "normal" American family.- Boss mentions that the number of 'normal' nuclear families is quickly being outnumbered by families with only a mother, only a father, step-families, or grandparent/grandchild families.

Contexts surrounding families will influence their ability to manage stress or recover from crisis.- These contexts include those the family can control, and those they cannot control. Although the number of studies incorporating family diversity has increased, many more
