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 Carrollton, TX 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 Carrollton, TX 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?

Here are common challenges that family members experience:

  •     Ongoing frustration or resentment towards one another 
  •     Unrelenting stress due to financial or marital problems 
  •     Child or teen behavioral issues with unknown origins: kids may act out at school or at home to express anger or fear in different ways 
  •     Tension during extended periods of time spent together such as holidays or vacations 
  •     Family members who haven’t spoken to each other and are unwilling to reconnect due to differing viewpoints or unreconciled events 

Sound familiar? These are just some of the issues that might make family counseling a viable option to improve the lives of yourself and your loved ones. Family or marriage counseling doesn’t mean that you and your relatives can’t “make it happen” by yourselves; it means that you’re going to be equipped with the tools you’re missing to make healthy changes. Get started today with Thriveworks in Carrollton, TX.

Connect with a Thriveworks Family Counselor

The choice to start family therapy can be hard to make, and not everyone may agree that it’s necessary. However, when you decide to move forward with taking steps to heal the relationships between you and your relatives, Thriveworks can help. You can get the support your family needs by contacting our client specialists, who will assist you in signing up for therapy and adding your insurance to help cover the costs. 

You and your relatives can even attend therapy sessions virtually, allowing for family members who are spread out across the U.S. to make time for progress and healing through Thriveworks counseling. Some of the issues that our trained family counselors can assist with include: 

  •     Deaths within the family that have occurred without time to process the event 
  •     Residual anger or resentment between relatives over perceived wrongs or shortcomings
  •     Communication skills that aren’t fully developed, resulting in constant arguments and bickering
  •     Addiction to drugs or alcohol 
  •     Untreated or potentially undiagnosed mental illness or disorders that family members are suffering from, like ADHD or depression 
  •     Stress from caring for a disabled or elderly member 

Even though it may seem like seeking family counseling means giving up, you’ll be doing the opposite. Family counseling is a proactive way to ensure that you and your family make the most out of your lives and connections to one another. It’s not something that any of you have to do alone. When you and your relatives decide to form a connection with one of our mental health professionals and work together with them, you may find the extra boost you need to re-establish the bonds of family and love.
