The power of family therapy comes from bringing parents and children together to transform their interactions. Instead of isolating family members from the emotional origin of their conflict, problems are addressed at their source.
This type of therapy can be helpful in many cases, such as when family members aren't getting along; disagree or argue often; or when a child or teen is having behavioral problems. Other issues families face are divorce, and/or adjusting to a blended family situation.
Family therapy involves counseling sessions with some, or all, family members, helping to improve communication skills among them. Treatment focuses on problem-solving techniques and can help parents re-establish their role as authority figures.
