Family Issues & Family Therapy

The family is a system composed of individuals embedded within a social context. The family of origin includes the mother, father and children; the extended family includes the grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Step-families and blended families have their own unique systems.

Families deal with many different issues which can impact the family system Such issues often include parenting issues, family of origin issues, blended-families and step-families issues, conflicting values, conflict between family members, cultural issues and religious issues.

The Family Unit

One of the family’s purposes is to provide support, love, and safety for its members. When families face problems, challenges and conflicts, they may need help to avoid or reverse destructive patterns. Cultural issues are an important part of understanding a family’s system and values.

Problems often are a result of a combination of an individual's or a family's developmental arrest plus stress. Difficulties often happen because of problems which have occurred throughout the generations.

Family Therapy

In family therapy, healthy communication is fostered and the connections between events become clearer. As therapy progresses, the needs and true feelings of various family members are revealed and understood, and greater empathy is developed. Conflicting needs are now out in the open where they can be understood, discussed, and resolved. The family begins to function better, self-esteem is enhanced, and healthier ways of dealing with others become a part of the family repertoire.

Providing Support

Family therapy provides an opportunity for all family members to come together for mutual support and re-integration. Too often families splinter because they do not have this opportunity to devote time to working through family issues. The therapist can ask questions, support the family and ensure that everyone is heard. Members working together on their difficulties often find new ways to participate as a family.

Safety and Trust

Family therapy addresses and helps with many challenges faced by families such as divorce, remarriage, additions or losses in family membership, violence, grief, illness, addiction, life-style issues, and other stresses that affect family members. In family therapy, family members can help reduce the hurt, foster positive interactions, and allow trust to develop. Hostility, conflict, and misunderstanding can be replaced with positive, nurturing behaviors. Family members can learn to support and feel safe with each other and to treat each other with mutual respect and concern. Family members can adopt new patterns of interaction and find solutions to family problems and issues.
