Family Therapy is a combination of individual psychotherapy and family therapy catered to what the family (system) needs. Each person within the family has a role and is essential to the process of the family. If one person in the family is in pain, the family as a whole will be in pain. Thus, the family as a whole will need to heal. Family therapy supports individuals and the family in addressing conflict, communication and dynamics.
Family therapy includes many components to improve the family system as a whole. Communication is essential to support the family in coping with conflict and resolution. Effective communication will allow the family to listen to understand rather than listen to respond.
Parenting is another component of family therapy. It can be difficult to know the best way to parent due to societal influences on body image, negative coping skills, and bullying. Fostering an environment that raises our children to understand their own worth as well as self-validation can be difficult and the fine line between enabling versus supporting. Ultimately parenting can be trial and error, and it’s helpful to have support, especially if you find yourself repeating patterns that are similar to your childhood.
