Family is a system that is responsible for many functions in society and is regarded as “healthy” when these functions are fulfilled. Family therapy, which was developed in the beginning of 1900’s, is accepted as an important means of solving the problems in the family. Feminist theory has made a unique contribution to the improvement and practice process of family therapies with its emphasis for questioning of the independence of family therapy from the hegemonic structres in the society. In this study, the development and basis of family therapies are emphasized; and critics of feminist theories against the concept of family and family therapy are evaluated. These criticisms are discussed under the topics of the concept of gender; theoretical foundations of family therapies; the conceptualization of the “normal” family and the roles in the family.
