In a perfect world, our families would provide us with support, unconditional love and acceptance and strength. However, all too often, family life can become riddled with conflict, resentments, dramatic arguments, disappointment, anger and guilt. We can feel rejected by misunderstandings, criticism or lack of support. We may build emotional walls or create distance to keep from being rejected or to avoid painful arguments.
Family therapy is different than other therapies in that the entire family is treated as the “client”. The basic understanding is:
What affects one of us, affects us all.
An illness or the negative behavior of one member can result in a larger family problem. While individual therapy can be help resolve a personal issue, family issues are best resolved when the cooperation of everyone in the family is involved. During family therapy sessions, members identify how conflicts affect one another individually and the family as a whole. The goal is that your family develops improved skills for managing conflicts and strengthens the bond you have with one another.
