We all enter this world with a family: be it our blood, adopted, or foster family members. Regardless, the family that we are born into or the family that we find shapes virtually every aspect of our lives: from how we think to what we believe in; from how we speak to the kind of relationships we seek; from our habits to our customs, traditions, and overall view of the world. And that’s for better or for worse.
All of that said, every single family experiences dysfunction. We might struggle to get along, to connect, to compromise. But every family is capable of repairing relationships and regaining its wholeness. Family therapy offers a way forward, as a family therapist can help you find resolve and develop a functional family again.
“There are no individuals in the world, only fragments of families.” –Carl Whitaker

What Is Family Therapy? How Can It Help?
Family therapy is a specific form of treatment that is aimed at helping families address specific issues that are hurting the overall functionality of a family. Those who are going through a particularly stressful or strenuous time can find value in therapy, as can those who are simply looking to improve or deepen their relationships.
If you decide to work with a family therapist at Thriveworks in Attleboro, your family therapist will look at the problem(s) at hand in terms of the larger family unit. This might involve dissecting individual issues, such as a behavioral problem or mental illness, and identifying how it affects the family as a whole. Family therapy works by taking this approach in addressing problems as individuals and for the group. Additionally, your family therapist will likely utilize multiple techniques to help you, such as techniques rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy.
Can My Family Benefit from Working with a Family Therapist?
As we touched on briefly above, many families can find family therapy valuable. This includes those who are merely looking to improve their relationships, as well as those going through a particularly difficult time. That said, often, the family therapists at Thriveworks in Attleboro help families experiencing…
- Behavioral problems in kids
- Grief and loss
- Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses
- Domestic violence
- Marital conflicts
- Addiction and/or substance abuse
- Divorce or separation
- Interpersonal conflicts
Again, your family therapist will likely utilize several techniques to help you and your family members work through your given challenge. However, your family therapist’s goals will likely include: 1) observing how you and your family members interact, 2) bring attention to problematic relationships or behaviors, 3) help you to replace these problematic relationships or behaviors with healthier alternatives, and 4) resolve the specific problems at hand to create a healthier dynamic for every individual involved.
If you believe that your family could find value in working with a professional family therapist or psychologist, that is grounds to schedule an appointment. The family therapists at our office would be happy to hear from you and help you, as soon as you are ready to embark on this journey.
