Advancing A Socially Inclusive Society: Confronting the Dialectic of Understanding Inclusion and Exclusion in the Family
Presentation by Dr Sandra E. Neil PhD (Psychology), The Satir Centre of Australia

Abstract:
The forms of the family have changed. Once limited to traditional, multigenerational nuclear families, newer forms now include such forms as same-sex, blended, and single parent families. There are also new ways of understanding and teaching the processes of family functioning and interconnection.
Consciousness of inclusion and exclusion, their important consequences, as well as added meaning in life, are learned in our original family triads.. Families comprising 'harmonious triads', (which is unusual) result in children who are both peaceful and content with parents, individually and together. A socially inclusive society is one in which all people feel valued, their differences respected, and their basic needs met so they can live in dignity. The Laidlaw Foundation identified five critical dimensions of social inclusion: "valued recognition, human development, involvement and engagement, proximity and material well-being" (Frieler & Zarnke, 2002, p.7). Social exclusion is the process of being shut out from the social, economic, political, and cultural systems which contribute to the integration of the person into the society. Family notions of love, harmony, inclusion and exclusion (and ultimately, belonging and membership) have significant implications for parents, children, and social systems.
How does a dysfunctional family promote rivalry, jealousy, envy and disharmony, and the "Psychology of the Enemy"? Why is triangulation more evident in closed family systems? How do family exclusions naturally occur? How can families learn and practice inclusion, love, consciousness of Self and Other? How can there be movements towards love, and the "Psychology of Compassion".
Virginia Satir's model of "Ways of Viewing the World" compares and contrasts the "Growth, Seed Model with the Hierarchical, Threat and Reward Model. Solutions will be proposed for improvement in family functioning, so that children can negotiate their own mastery, intimacy, and inclusions in life (versus stagnation, distancing and exclusions).
Advancing familial cultural and intergroup lessons of inclusion/exclusion can enable open systems in the family, organisations, and in the world. This dialectical discussion aspires to reconnect the values that underpin a socially inclusive society.
