The Rose family from the popular TV series Schitt’s Creek are no strangers to highs and lows in their relationships. Mom and dad duo, Moira and Johnny, were strangers in their kids’ lives while they were growing up. Instead of parenting, they were off working and traveling. Meanwhile, sister Alexis and brother David were being raised by nannies. When the Rose family has everything taken from them, they are forced to build their relationships up and learn what it means to be a real family. 

Most families aren’t being uprooted and shipped off to a little town called Schitt’s Creek to fix their issues. It often takes the help of an unbiased, outside perspective to help you get through the tough times. Family therapists are highly trained and qualified mental health professionals who can help you improve communication, tackle past trauma, manage stressors, and more. 

“Sometimes it does work out and even though everything inside us is telling us to protect ourselves, one you’ve got it… don’t let it go.” – David Rose

What Is Family Therapy All About? 

Family therapy is designed to help you tackle any friction that is going on in your family unit. Like in the questions we asked above, there are many different reasons why families choose to go to counseling. Family therapy is generally short-term, meaning that most clients will finish in as little as nine sessions. 

When first starting your treatment, your counselor will sit down and take every individual’s personal concerns and goals into consideration. By doing this, our therapists can better understand every aspect of your family and the problems you are experiencing. With the information they gather, they will create a unique treatment plan that is specific to you and your loved ones. 

The goal of family therapy is to work together to heal any mental, emotional, or psychological problems that are tearing your family apart. To accomplish this, a variety of methods and techniques may be used. Structural therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, traditional talk therapy, strategic therapy, narrative therapy, and play therapy are all examples. 

These will help you improve your communication skills, learn how to listen to one another better, improve compassion, and practice healthy problem-solving techniques. At Thriveworks in Kansas City, MO, we want to equip you with all the tools and skills you need to live in harmony.
