Experience the family
Family therapy uses special techniques to help family
members cope with many problems and situations. Family therapy can be
helpful in dealing with anger, mental illness, chemical dependency,
chronic illness, terminal illness, bereavement, abuse, behavioral
problems, family conflict, divorce and family restructuring during
divorce and remarriage.
Although one family member may be identified as
"having the problem", it is likely that the entire family is
affected. Family therapy aims to help all family members achieve healing
and healthy interactions.
Family therapy sessions are either 45 or 90 minutes each
and are usually held on a weekly basis. At the initial stage of therapy,
usually during the second session, you will be given an estimate of how
much time your treatment will take. For those of you on a fixed working
schedule, a regular day and time can be allotted for you each week.
