How Does Family Therapy Help?
In family therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate in a healthy way that supports your relationships. You’ll learn how to resolve problems in a healthy manner, understand your family members better and recognize how your actions impact the family dynamic.
You can participate in family therapy to help manage mental health concerns in one individual. This type of therapy is also appropriate for marital distress. You might choose to attend family therapy instead of or in addition to individual therapy or marital counseling to address the needs of the family unit.
At American Behavioral Clinics, we use a multifaceted approach to work with your treatment goals. We may meet with some members of the family individually or conduct group sessions. We use a variety of evidence-based methods to learn coping skills that help you avoid conflict as well as manage it when it arises.
We will explore and address boundaries, power dynamics, relationship psychodynamics, reasons for dysfunction, problematic behaviors and communication. With a focus on goals and progress, we can help minimize the emotional charge in relationships with family members so that you can create a trusting, respectful bond.
