Family therapy can augment individual treatment plans, and sometimes it even replaces the one-on-one sessions completely. Family therapy provides a safe setting for real-life interaction with others. In this environment, Family members can discuss their problems honestly and give each other feedback and positive reinforcement.
Therapists provide a setting in which members can learn to identify, understand and express their feelings accurately to others. Led by a therapist, members are encouraged to share their thoughts
openly, but at their own pace. Family therapy can provide a sense of community that greatly enhances the psychological healing process. A focus is placed on each of the family members strengths so
that each member can help the unit come together as one as communication skills are enhanced throughout.
The price of family therapy is more expensive compared to individual psychotherapy. However, family therapy is requires a higher level of care. Please consult your therapist to find out if family therapy is right for your family.
