    Family vulnerability is the sense of the possibility of being physiologically or psychologically exposed and/or having a sense of being at risk, and of being unprotected, unguarded, defenseless, or easily wounded (Purdy, 2004). The chance of being susceptible or liable to unexpected or adverse outcomes leaves the family with a sense of openness to influences in the context of CI (Goetzke, Parks, & Peterson, 2014).
