Starting Family therapy

What is family therapy?

Family therapy helps families resolve conflicts and strengthen their relationships. It is led by qualified mental health professionals like psychologists, licensed professional counselors (LPCs), and licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs) who have extensive training in family dynamics and group communication.

How does family therapy work?

Thriveworks family therapists in Boca Raton, FL usually begin by asking what everyone’s goals are for family counseling. Family members may need help with very specific issues or with general relationship functioning. But there are three main purposes in family counseling: to educate, to counsel, and to strengthen. Thriveworks also offers online family therapy and in-person services, so you may all meet in an office together or join a video call from your home depending on everyone’s location and availability.

What is the most effective family therapy?

The most effective form of Family therapy will often depend on the family itself, as there are many types of family therapy for therapists to use as they see fit in order to best meet the needs of their clients. However, one of the most commonly used types of family therapy is structural family therapy (SFT). SFT focuses specifically on family dynamics and interactions, looking at how they shape the relationships and structure present in the family. It can be effectively used to treat a variety of concerns.

How do I know if my family needs therapy?

This answer often looks different to each family that starts family therapy. However, some signs that your family might need to consider family counseling include frequent fights or misunderstandings, constant tension, experiencing loss, behavioral issues, marital issues, divorce, and blended family issues, among others.

What is included in family therapy?

In family therapy, therapists will often start by asking questions and assessing individual and family dynamics. From there, they may employ therapeutic techniques such as structured family therapy, CBT, strategic family therapy, and more depending on the present concerns and conflicts. From there, a therapist will work to open lines of communication between family members and facilitate emotional healing and growth.

What is the success rate of family therapy?

Family therapy can be incredibly successful, with some studies reporting a success rate of almost 90% for improving participants’ emotional and mental health, and around 66% for improving their physical health.

Is family therapy conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks therapists in Boca Raton, FL offer both online family therapy and in-person family therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does family therapy last?

Family therapy is usually short term and solution-focused, with most families accomplishing their goals in 12 sessions or fewer. However, it can also last for longer if the probles at hand are more complex — and that’s okay, too.

Need more help deciding?

You “hate” them, but you love them. A lot of people can relate to this phrase when it comes to their family members. We argue with our siblings about who gets to use the bathroom first; we fight with our cousins about who gets to host Christmas dinner; we despise our parents for making us move and change schools. The list never ends.

The truth is that it’s normal to fight with our family members. But sometimes the conflicts that arise are more serious than who gets dibs on the bathroom first. And they prove to threaten our relationships, requiring professional help. Fortunately, family therapists and psychologists specialize in helping families to work through conflict and repair relationships.

“The overall goal [of counseling] is to help family members become ‘system experts’ who could know [their] family system so well that the family could readjust itself without the help of an expert.” –Murray Bowen

What Is Family Therapy? What Are the Benefits?

Family therapy, or family counseling, is aimed at helping families address specific problems that affect familial relationships and overall wellbeing of individuals. These problems include major life changes or the development of a mental health condition. Sometimes, family therapy is supplemental, while in other instances it is the main form of treatment.

Many different families can benefit from working with a family therapist or psychologist when they experience a stressful circumstance or event. Here are some common sources of stress and conflict that bring families into therapy:

  • Mental health concerns like depression or substance abuse
  • The passing of a beloved family member
  • Communication problems
  • Behavioral problems in children
  • Financial strain or disagreements

A family therapist at Thriveworks Boca Raton in Palm Beach, FL near Delray Beach can help family members to open up about these problems, better understand them, and work together to solve or manage them. For example, if a family member has developed a mental health issue like depression, family therapy can help each individual learn how they can best support the individual. Or, if the breakdown of communication is what’s hurting the family dynamic, a family therapist can teach individuals techniques for communicating more effectively.

How Are Family Therapists and Psychologists Qualified to Help?

Family therapy is led by licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), who have specific skills, training, and experience in this area. Other mental health professionals, such as social workers and psychologists, who have worked to complete family therapy training might also utilize these techniques in their work.

This type of therapy is typically short-term; on average, people finish within 9 sessions. Now, each session can vary in terms of what is discussed as well as which family members join. This depends on the needs and goals for therapy, of which your Thriveworks Boca Raton family therapist or psychologist will work to understand at the beginning of treatment.

Pamela really helped me through some difficult issues; she helped me to understand the people in my life and how to interact with them and understand why they are how to understand them. With that knowledge, I am better able to interact. It is very helpful to have someone I can share everything with. And Pamela is that person for me.

My husband and I sought counseling due to several significant issues in our marriage. We were distraught and on the verge of divorce. Jeannie's approach to marriage counseling led us through a process that changed my perspective on my husband's actual needs and his to my needs. We didn't hear what the other was truly saying! I would highly recommend Jeannie to work with any couple from minor issues to major issues in their marriage.
