Explain which is your least favorite between family development theory and family systems theory and why.

Answer: Family development theory


Although this theory´s idea of family functioning as a dynamic system that goes through a set of specific stages has been useful in a past period, its incompatibility with nontraditional family structures, meaning those that transcend the classic family unit of a wife, a husband, and two children, make it outdated in the current state of family constructs that show a lot more diversity. The family systems theory´ focuses on the interconnectedness between the family members as well as their connections to their community, and therefore is more suitable to analyze different family structures.
