Postulate the relationships that would necessarily change and the implications for working with the family as client that the MFT would need to consider.

2) Consider a scenario in which a member of the sandwich generation (can be male or female) is at the center of family controversy in which they are considering making a major life change (it could be changing careers, returning to school, buying a new home, etc.). Consider ways in which the life change you select may impact the recent relocation of an elderly parent to the home of the adult child. Postulate the impact of the change on various members of the household (you can select the family size/configuration).
