Summary/Abstract: Theoretical background of the paper is a systemic approach to the family, more precisely, the Circumplex model of family systems (Olson & Gorall, 2007). The model is based on three key concepts for understanding family functioning. Cohesion refers to the degree of emotional closeness offamily members. Flexibility refers to an agreement on the division of roles and tasks within the family system. Communica-tion is taken as a necessary element for the realisation of the previous two dimensions. Family communication within the context of family functionality relates to the ability to listen, send clear messages, and show consideration and respect for others.
