What is “systemic”?
This means “of or relating to an entire system”. Emphasis is not focused on the disturbance evident in the system, rather, the disturbance is considered to be part of a disrupted system.
Individuals are evaluated in the context of a systemic approach as to their impact on the group and the group’s impact on the individual. Systemic consulting and therapy views the individual as a part of a larger picture and not as a problem within themselves. Disruptions in normal function at the individual level must be handled in the context of a disruption in the larger picture (i.e. system).
