Multigenerational Family Dynamics 2020:
Understanding BOTH Continuity and Changing Realities

Purpose:
Families in North America today both resemble and look different from families of the past.  The similarities and differences have implications for the care of vulnerable individuals among us.  As clinicians, it is helpful to understand these dynamics and work with them to provide the highest quality assistance to both aging and disabled persons and their families.  This workshop will take a look at some common family dynamics and explore how they have changed in recent decades.  It will also explore what issues have tended to stay consistent in family dynamics.  It will provide a framework for understanding family dynamics and using them to better assist those who depend on “outsiders” to provide care and support.

Learning objectives:
By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will:

  1. To describe the nature of multigenerational families in North American both currently & in the past.
  2. To identify cultural dynamics that can differentiate families from each other and from the dominant culture.
  3. To list the demographic and technology changes which have impacted families in recent decades.
  4. To describe 5 characteristics of family dynamics that have remained relatively consistent over time and that impact the provision of care to vulnerable individuals in family systems.
  5. To describe 5 characteristics of family dynamics that have seen a shift in recent decades and that impact the provision of care to vulnerable individuals in family systems.
