Integration Connection:
Drawing on Bronfenbrenner's ecosystems theory as a family systems, integrative approach, Voydanoff discusses the need for integration of services for families. She states: “Families with multiple problems need comprehensive, coordinated, and intensive assistance that is not available in a service delivery system made up of autonomous, narrowly defined programs. They need integrated and sustained interventions delivered by professionals who recognize and are able to respond to a family's multiple problems and needs” (p. 63). Voydanoff Annotation

Students should be taught through learning experiences and example how to integrate content from various disciplines and specialties.
