Our family connectivity affects who we are and who we become. We learn our vocabulary, habits, customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. Whether directly or indirectly our attitudes, values, and beliefs are shaped by familial experiences.
Individuals seeking healthier family relationships can benefit from family therapy.
Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
- Parent-child conflict
- Problems between siblings
- Domestic violence
- Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
Family therapy is a supportive process for those individuals seeking to improve relationship dynamics, understand conflict resolution, and recover from trauma. If any of the above resonates for your family, consider seeking family counseling.
Some positive family therapy outcomes are:
- Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
- Fostered sense of cohesion and communication among family members
- Promotes problem solving through understanding of family patterns and dynamics
- Builds empathy and understanding
- Reduces family conflict
Studies show that family therapy is particularly beneficial for households with children, adolescents, and teenagers; as age stage development can create deficits in functioning levels. Healthy family functioning fosters better future outcomes.
