Working Together in Family Therapy

Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that involves all members of a family or stepfamily, in some cases, members of the extended family (e.g. grandparents).  The therapist will conduct multiple sessions to help families deal with important issues that may interfere with the functioning of the family and the home environment.

 

The goal of family therapy is to help family members improve communication, solve family problems, understand and handle special family situations (such as death, serious physical or mental illness, child and adolescent issues, or divorce), and create a better functioning home environment.
