Models that look only at the effects of social interaction patterns in father-child or mother-child dyads are inadequate for understanding the impact of interaction patterns on the whole family system. The family systems’ view provides a coherent foundation and framework for such efforts. Family therapy theories all agree that the dynamic organization and interactive emotional relations between family members, including co-parenting skills of the parents, even trans-generationally, may critically influence the individual’s well-being.

Couple romantic distress co-varies with individual emotional and behavioral disorders. The effect of couple distress—particularly negative communication—is not confined to the adult partners. Even when the effects are mediated through co-parenting skills and parenting alliance as suggested above, the couple’s interactive style cannot be totally dismissed when working clinically with families
