To learn more, call us today and ask us about the benefits of family therapy.
Who Needs Family Therapy
There are a variety of reasons why you may be seeking family therapy. These may include:
- Your child or teen is misbehaving, and you can’t figure out how to stop the misbehavior
- A family member or close friend has recently died, and the family is grieving
- Family members are suffering from depression or anxiety
- There are LGBTQ issues within the family
- One or more members of the family have suffered from domestic violence
- You’ve been trying to have a baby, and you have been unsuccessful
- Parents are fighting, or have decided to get a divorce
- One or more members of the family have suffered from substance abuse
You don’t need to be ashamed of these problems. However, you do need to address them, so that the family members can heal and overcome them.
Benefits of Family Therapy
One of the benefits of family therapy is that your family will understand healthy boundaries and build better family dynamics. If you fight a good deal of the time with your family, you need to find a better way of expressing your emotions and overcoming your differences. Moreover, it would help if you established clear boundaries. Once you’ve done so, you will find that you’ve built more trust and support with your family.
Another one of the benefits of family therapy is that you will improve your communication and problem-solving skills. If you can express how you feel to your family members, or effectively talk about ways to solve your problem, you’ll find the fighting decreases significantly. Additionally, communication and problem-solving can help you rebuild the family dynamics.
Moreover, when you engage in family therapy, you will be able to be more empathetic towards your family. Communicating how you feel will let them see things from your point of view. You’ll also find that this empathy leads to less stress and more forgiveness within your family.
