1. Boundaries Open (input & output to those outside family) Closed (barriers to outsiders) 2. Roles – a position in system, gives identity. Birth order, gender, worker vs. player, etc. Roles can change, but often similar in same group (change if change groups) 3. Subsystems Parental Sibling 4. Hierarchy – usually both parents over kids, and one kid over another. (Must control, but can’t eliminate) Not just cause and effect (behavioral, mechanistic). Some value in this, but more complex.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
