Family Therapy

Family therapy is a specific therapeutic model that focuses on understanding symptoms and interactions within the context of the family itself. This includes the idea that families form and grow as they interact with each other and the various environments that they engage with. Family therapists consider problems as attempts by the family to respond to some type of external influence, lifestyle transition or unfulfilled need. The objective is to help the family create new ways of interacting, communicating and supporting each other rather than focus on individual issues or pathology.
