This chapter begins with a brief overview of structural family therapy and then follows with an empirical rationale for the use of structural family therapy with adolescent conduct disorder. The central goal of structural family therapy is to create a well-functioning structure, which is hierarchically organized with clear boundaries around subsystems. These goals are achieved through enactments, working with interactions in the session, so that new patterns are formed. Assumptions of structural family therapy and its techniques are applied to a case study.

Keywords:   hierarchy, enactment, family systems, subsystem
