Yahya mirshekaran, Zohreh kazemi, Masumeh afzali


In the modern world of globalization, family can be seen as a margrave of values. By making the family efficient and in particular by promoting the status of women in the society, historical and social upheavals are to be directed toward the more development of Islamic and humanitarian values. To this end, it is critical for the state planning and management to make diligent efforts to find, with a pathologic look, a way to amend the family structure and optimize its functions. The prime issue this study seeks to find an answer to is that why the modern society’s family system seems to gradually lose its status and functions. For this purpose, results of the studies conducted so far were analyzed, bearing in mind the research questions posed here, by a secondary analysis. Among others, changes of values and beliefs, deviance of the family structure and of the micro-systems affecting the family such as mass media, education system and higher education system, and failure to satisfy affective needs of the family members were identified as factors damaging the family structure. To reinforce the family status and functions, a holistic view should be adopted, areas of expertise and execution should be tightly interconnected, a sophisticated system of statistics and information should be established, all views and opinions whether agreeing or disagreeing should be taken into consideration, a close relationship should be created and preserved among various organizations and systems, adequate attentions should be paid to the cultural issues, appropriate statutes should be ratified, extremes and passivism should be avoided and local mechanisms need to be also focused on.

Key words: pathology, women, family, solutions to the family problems
