In this session, Dr. Minuchin works with a couple who has two children, both of whom are in foster care. This case  demonstrates ways in which the involvement of multiple systems of care can cause disorganization in a family, if the systems themselves fail to work in sync. In this case, we meet a mother who struggles with drug addiction, which has impacted her ability to care for her children and family.
