Family therapy, or family counseling, addresses specific issues that can create struggle or even harm the health of the family. Most families can improve their family level of functioning through family therapy when going through a stressful time or dealing with challenging issues. Issues can impact relationships within the family structure. Some of these difficult issues can include major life transitions, divorce, the death of a loved one, conflict, financial hardship or developmental transitions such as the onset of adolescents.
Sometimes there can debilitating consequences to a family when one or more of the family members are experiencing mental health issues. Therapy doesn’t have to be reserved for use only once a family reaches a crisis point. It’s an effective tool to maintain your family’s health proactively and can actually be effective for avoiding family crisis in well in advance. Some mental health issues that may impact the family include, substance abuse, depression, some form of chronic illness and academic or behavioral problems.
