Family therapy focuses on the family as a system and how each individual in the family impacts the other. Anyone who wants to improve troubled relationships can benefit from family therapy. Family therapy can be useful in addressing a variety of issues, such as marital and financial problems, conflict between parents and children, and the effects of substance abuse on the entire family, to name a few.
Family therapy may include all family members or just those best able to participate. The specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Families often use sessions to supplement couples or individual treatment to tackle issues together for healthier interaction.
