Family therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on healing the family unit through discussion of family patterns, communication, and how our individual actions affect others in the family. The basic premise of family therapy is that what happens to one member of the family, happens to all of the family. In family therapy, your family will learn healthier communication techniques, as well as concrete steps to improving conflict, in order to rebuild family connection. Family therapy can be useful for families that are struggling with stress, grief, anger, conflict, or adolescent behavior issues. It can help your family understand each other, and bring you closer together.
