English term or phrase:take sb at face falue
A member of the family may try to harm himself or someone else and thus come to the attention of an external agency. To take the "identified patient" at face value and to deal only with that person, without seeing the rest of the family, would represent a very distorted and limited perspective of the dysfunction inherent in the family.
