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 Cheyenne, WY 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 Cheyenne, WY 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?

Our relationships with our family members can have a profound impact on our lives. At their best, they can provide us with joy and give us support to navigate life’s challenges. At their worst, they can cause lasting resentment and negatively impact our mental, emotional, and behavioral health.

Perhaps your relationship with a particular family member has begun to sour lately. Maybe things have been difficult for as long as you can remember. Or maybe your family is having trouble dealing with a move or a death in the family. Whatever the case might be, family therapy offers you an outlet to resolve your conflicts, improve communication, and foster healthier and happier relationships with your loved ones.

If you’d like to improve your family relationships, consider reaching out to the licensed family therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Cheyenne, WY.

Reasons People Seek Out Family Therapy

When life gets tough, it can be difficult to imagine it being any other way. However, our licensed marriage and family therapists are trained to help our clients work through issues, both big and small.

These are a few of the reasons people seek out family therapy services:

  • Long-term conflicts and grudges
  • Parenting issues
  • Separation, divorce, or remarriage
  • Substance abuse
  • Difficulties relating to physical or mental illness
  • Death in the family
  • Major life transitions
  • Blending families
  • Abuse or trauma

This is by no means a complete list. Whatever struggles you’re encountering with your family, you can rely on the family therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Cheyenne, WY to help you work through them together.

What Can I Expect From Family Therapy?

Family counseling gives you and other family members a place to speak about your problems and emotions to an experienced and unbiased professional. By doing so, you can open up lines of communication, resolve conflict, and improve your relationships. While group sessions are the norm, you may also take part in one-on-one sessions depending on the situation.

Having honest conversations with your family members can be difficult. Nobody enjoys hearing that something they did hurt someone they care about. But during family therapy sessions, your therapist will help you talk about the issues you’ve been avoiding so the healing process can begin. This is important because it is common for conflicts to last years while family members fight over minor issues without addressing the core problems.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) plays an integral role in many treatment plans. This form of therapy encourages clients to view how their thoughts affect their emotions or behaviors. In a family setting, this form of therapy can reveal the assumptions and perceptions each person carries with them and how that affects larger family dynamics.

Even if your family has very strong and loving bonds, that foundation can be shaken when faced with a crisis. This can take the form of death in the family, loss of a job, or another major life transition like moving. Everyone works through transitions differently and it is common for children to act out or for parents to argue. When tensions are high, it can be fertile breeding ground for ineffective or harmful behaviors.

Issues like separation, divorce, or remarriage can also take a heavy toll on the relationships between family members, no matter how amicable a split may be. Regardless of the specific problems you’re dealing with, a licensed family counselor has the experience to help you navigate life’s challenges so you can grow stronger together instead of farther apart.

Family conflicts can often seem hopeless in the moment but countless families like yours have sought out counseling to work toward a brighter future. At Thriveworks in Cheyenne, WY, our licensed marriage and family therapists are here to help.
