Family Therapy – Therapists, Coaches and Counselors in Greensboro
Not all families get along, but unlike with friends it’s not so easy to turn your back on blood relatives when the going gets tough. That said, sometimes family situations can be trying to say the least, and it’s tempting to just walk out and never come back. There are some families who live in perpetual conflict where no day goes by without someone screaming the house down.
What’s sad about these situations is that people tend to accept them as the norm, or their norm anyways. In truth, such environments are harmful to physical and mental wellbeing, but no one has to live like this, not if they don’t want to. There are many situations where families are unable to resolve their differences. In such cases, family therapists can probably do for them what they cannot do for themselves. The family counseling concept is simple in theory: it’s to nurture change and encourage development. In practice, it takes a lot more work, but it can be incredibly effective all the same.
Family therapy uses a range of counseling and other techniques including:
- Structural therapy
- Strategic therapy
- Systemic/Milan therapy
- Narrative Therapy
- Trans generational Therapy
Finding the Right Balance
Troubled families are not just the result of trouble-making family members, though it may seem like that at times. The root causes can be pretty deep and quite latent. Sometimes there are underlying conditions in some people too, like:
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Drink problems and drug addictions
- Mental illness
- Divorce or legal separations
- Undiagnosed psychiatric conditions, etc.
Family therapy can often help get to the root cause of turmoil and disruptions in the home. A qualified therapist is impartial. They can step back and look in from an outside-observer’s perspective. Therapists get to see the problem by removing the culprits from the picture. When they see the problem—without the people—they can then piece everything together. Once they have a clearer picture they are able to present a workable plan of action for the troubled family.
