Family happiness is central to a harmonious home, so the maintenance of healthy relationships is vital. Through family therapy, your family can resolve conflict, improve communication, and learn to problem-solve.
Better family relationships improve the well-being of everyone in the house. Your therapist may suggest you meet individually or as a family. Individual children and adolescent therapy will include a component of family therapy as part of the treatment plan.
At Utah Therapy, we believe family therapy is the perfect way to create a happier home. Individual family relationships contribute to the overall family dynamic. Often, it is difficult to pinpoint the challenges in your own family and even harder to address them on your own. By inviting one of our counselors to work with your family, you’ll identify challenges and discover effective ways to resolve them. The result will be a healthier and more unified family dynamic.
Through family therapy, your family will improve their communication and be able to problem-solve together, which leads to a less tense and more peaceful home environment. When individuals in a family can respond to each other’s emotional needs and respect each other’s differences, they are better able to work through challenges – together.
Family therapy is an option for anyone who wants to improve strained relationships within their family. It can be used to address specific issues, such as conflicts between parents and children, or larger issues, such as abuse, grief, or substance abuse. Family therapy is not limited to parents with younger children; it is also a useful tool for adult children with aging parents.
A family therapist helps identify challenges, conflicts, or anxieties within a family, develops plans to overcome them; teaches conflict resolution and how to apply it to the family; works with family members individually to improve the family as a whole; and teaches healthy family dynamics.
Some of the challenges a family therapist can address include:
- Marital challenges
- Divorcing families
- Sibling rivalry
- Blended families
- Grief and loss
- Illness and disabilities
- Substance abuse
- Adult children and aging parents
Family therapy is also a necessary part of an individual child or adolescent therapy and will be part of their treatment plan.
We honor the spiritual beliefs and values of each client throughout the therapeutic process.
