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 Missouri City, 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 Missouri City, 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?

The ultimate goal of family counseling is to equip each family member with the tools to communicate, listen, and engage. If you believe your family could benefit from learning these and other skills, please consider reaching out to us at Thriveworks in Sugar Land, TX by giving us a call or book online.

Common Reasons To Pursue Family Counseling

There are many reasons that families choose to attend therapy sessions. Some of the most common reasons include the following:

  • Dealing with physical illnesses. When a family member has a physical illness that requires long-term care, it impacts the entire family. Learning how to be supportive can go a long way in promoting physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
  • Resolving sibling rivalry. All siblings bicker from time to time, but when siblings are constantly fighting, it may be time to seek the help of a professional family therapist. A trained psychologist, therapist, or another mental health professional can reinforce positive behavioral practices and improve communication skills.
  • Separation or divorce. The dissolution or temporary pause of a marriage can have profound effects on children. A professional can help you talk to your children about any upcoming changes to the family’s structure.
  • Different parenting styles. When parenting styles differ, it can cause friction in the household and confusion for children, which can often result in behavioral problems. A therapist can help parents come to agreements about their children’s overall well-being.

A trained professional can address other family problems such as substance abuse, major life transitions, and mental illnesses. To see if therapy or counseling is the right choice for you and your family, please phone us at Thriveworks in Sugar Land, TX.
