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 Nashua, NH 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 Nashua, NH 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 singer Bob Marley once stated, “Truth is everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.” There’s probably not a family in existence that hasn’t experienced some degree of internal distress. Family members can’t help but hurt each other. That’s because families are the crucible within which all of our growing up happens. They should be a safe place to make mistakes, discover our identities, and learn to be the best versions of ourselves. But because those processes don’t take place in isolation, there can be casualties. Family relationships often change, and sometimes suffer. But hopefully everyone emerges wiser and more closely-knit than ever. 

At Thriveworks in Nashua, NH, family therapy can help people deepen their bonds by providing an emotionally secure forum in which everyone can speak openly and securely about their own experiences. Family counseling can help family members with problem solving, specific issues, and treatment plans that can reconnect people in healthy ways. If you think your family could benefit from family therapy, reach out to Thriveworks in Nashua today to get started.

Can You Do Family Therapy Online?

You can absolutely do family therapy online. Virtual therapy is just as effective as traditional in-person therapy, but has the added benefit of convenience and comfort for many families.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
