Family Therapy is a form of mental health counseling primarily intended to help family members better understand one another and how to communicate more effectively. It is guided by a trained psychotherapist or licensed clinical social worker.
Many, if not most, of the problems treated using family therapy are exacerbated or caused by communication problems. Emotions often run high, even if they mostly stay beneath the surface at times. Intense emotions can make it harder to empathize or hear the other person’s perspective until we learn to manage them.
Family therapy focuses on personal interactions and the dynamics involved. It is usually short-term: exploring patterns, identifying conflicts, and focusing on specific goals. Developing better communication in the family system opens doors toward resolving even long-standing resentments and complex conflicts.
