ROMAN, Nicolette V et al. Relational aspects of family functioning and family satisfaction with a sample of families in the Western Cape. Social work (Stellenbosch. Online) [online]. 2016, vol.52, n.3, pp.303-312. ISSN 2312-7198.

Family functioning may affect how satisfied family members are within the family. This study assessed the relational aspects between family functioning and family satisfaction with a conveniently sampled group of families. This study applied a quantitative methodology with a cross-sectional correlational design. The sample consisted of 204 participants (57% females, 50% Black Africans and 39% speaking isiXhosa). The average age was 31 years (SD=11.07). The results suggest that families could be at risk in terms of family functioning and this predicted being satisfied with the family. Implications for social work practice are provided.
