What is family therapy?

Family therapy focuses on the interactions in between family members and the aim during the sessions is to create psychological health within the family relationships, where things are not working. The psychologist/therapist helps with pointing out and redirecting interactions between family members and introduces new communication skills that work for each person in a more productive and positive way.

Once a family system that didn’t function properly before, is being nurtured by a psychologist and introduced to new ideas that work better, the family has a good chance to develop into a healthier and more harmonies unit. As a result encouragement, support and the flow of love for each other can be created.

Depending on the nature of the difficulties a family is going through; the therapist might meet with the whole family, or only with the member(s) of the family, who seem(s) to struggle or act out the most. Once the therapist has an overall picture and understanding about the family dynamic, he will then decide which family members will be involved in the treatment plan.

Family therapy can be helpful, when family members within the family system are having problems with each other, or when outside forces affect a family.
