Family therapy can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. This therapy style can teach you skills to deepen family connections, helps improve troubled relationships with your partner, children, siblings, parents or other family member. Family therapy is often short term. However, the treatment plan depend on how severe family's situation is.
Client’s may wish to work on specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family.
In my experience families often pursue therapy along with other types of mental health treatment, especially if one of the family members has a mental illness or addiction that also requires additional therapy or rehabilitation treatment.
For example, a family can attend family therapy while the person who has an addiction participates in residential treatment. As addiction is a family disease, sometimes the family may participate in family therapy even if the person with an addiction hasn't sought out his or her own treatment. Family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict in such circumstances family therapy can be useful
I aim for you and your family members to understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring you closer together as a family.
