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 Flowood, MS 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 Flowood, MS 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?

The Baker family had been through some tough times together. When Mr. Baker lost his job unexpectedly, his two teens started helping out more around the house while Mrs. Baker worked longer hours. After the family made the decision to move into a smaller home in a different area, the kids had to change schools. Through all of these changes, the Baker family supported each other without question.

After some time, Mr. Baker found a job again and it seemed like the family had weathered the worst of the storm. But adjusting to the move was still proving difficult. Both parents felt overwhelmed by their financial situations and it seemed like every family dinner ended in a screaming match.

Unsure of how else to close the rift between the family, Mrs. Baker suggested they try family counseling. Though there was some reluctance at first, after a few sessions the Baker family noticed a difference in their communication and understanding. Though there’s still more work for them to do as a family, they couldn’t have imagined getting through it without the help and support of their licensed therapist.

Is your family experiencing a similar situation? Do you feel like there have been more disagreements and fewer hugs lately? The same help is available to you. The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling center in Flowood, MS are here to help you. Call or schedule an appointment online today.

When Is Therapy the Right Choice for Your Family?

Deciding when to reach out to a therapist is a personal decision for each family. People often wait until they feel they have no other options, similar to the Baker family. However, had the Baker family decided to start attending therapy when hard times initially fell upon them, they could have gotten help sooner.

Tensions can occur in families with major changes like moves and financial difficulties, but there are many different situations that might bring a family into counseling. Some examples of these situations could include:

  • Recurring conflicts without resolution
  • Supporting a family member through mental illness, such as depression or anxiety
  • Behavioral problems in children or teens
  • Going through a divorce or separation
  • Blending families together
  • Coping with the loss of a loved one
  • Difficulty defining rules, roles, and expectations
  • Mending emotional strain between family members

It’s common to go through difficult times with your family. In many cases, working through problems might necessitate the help of a licensed mental health professional. Ultimately, going to family therapy is about resolving conflict and strengthening family relationships so you can strengthen your family system once again.

Consider reaching out to Thriveworks in Flowood, MS if this sounds like a path you’d like to take with your family.

How Therapy Helps Family Relationships

Family therapy differs from individual therapy in that it looks at how a problem affects the family systems, which can include immediate family, extended family, significant others, and so on.

In your initial therapy sessions, a therapist or counselor will speak with each person about their specific issues to best understand each person’s perspective. They might also want to hear about each family member’s goals for therapy. With the knowledge of your family’s needs, your provider can then develop a treatment plan that is specific to your family and your family only. Typically, treatment is short-term and lasts nine to twelve sessions, though it can run for shorter or longer periods of time.

It’s also important that each person is heard and listened to, so a therapist can help resolve conflict in a collaborative manner. Therapy can help your family find long-term solutions to how you all can learn to face challenges and stressors together. Treatment is most effective when each family member is open and willing to participate in therapy sessions.

Family therapy sessions can help your family find a way forward by improving your communication and understanding of one another. When conflict comes your way in the future, you can know that you’re in it together as a family, rather than feeling like you are each struggling alone.
