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 Tampa, FL 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 Tampa, FL 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?

In a perfect world, every family would get along and eliminate the need for family therapists. However, some families face challenges and turmoil that can wreak havoc on the home’s harmony. We see families argue in the media and even our favorite TV families have conflicts to work through. Family conflict is normal but when it gets to be too much or go on for too long, they could benefit from family therapy.

Do you find it hard to communicate without getting upset? Do you avoid being in the same room as your other family members? Do you wish you could do more activities together? If you answered yes to these questions or feel like there’s nothing else you can do to mend your family’s turbulence, a family therapist at Thriveworks Tampa Counseling can step in to help.

Thriveworks Tampa Counseling has highly skilled therapists that are trained in helping families work through conflict. They have the proper knowledge and tools to meet the needs of each individual and repair the family unit to help you work towards a happier and healthier mental state. If you are ready to make changes and experience the benefits of working with one of our therapists, reach out to our office today.

When Is It Time for Family Therapy?

Choosing the right time to seek out therapy is only a decision that you and your family can make. All members have to be willing and ready to openly talk about the challenges they face. If you are on the fence about receiving professional help, ask yourself this: have we tried everything in order to resolve our conflict? If the answer is yes, it may be time for you to explore the benefits of family counseling. Our therapists are qualified to help families with issues like:

  • Drug misuse and dependence
  • Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Domestic abuse
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Marital conflicts
  • Financial loss
  • Disruptive adolescence

For a lot of families, counseling could be seen as shameful if you are not able to handle your turmoil alone. However, those who seek out counseling are not only strong, but mentally ready to make a change. Family therapy is aimed to help you work through your difficulties and give you the tools to resolve any situation or argument that may come up in the future.

The Process of Family Therapy: How Does It Work?

Once you and your family are ready to go to counseling, one of our Thriveworks Tampa therapists will complete an assessment of all family members. It’s important when seeking this type of therapy to examine the behaviors and attitudes of all members. Your counselor will use their assessments to create a unique plan of action based on their examination. The plan created for you will offer guidance, support, and tips on how to overcome turmoil in a healthy manner. Here are some examples of what family therapy can help you do:

  1. Offer sensitivity to complex cultures, beliefs, and relationships
  2. Create close connections with family members to build trust
  3. Allow you to communicate in a safe and supportive environment
  4. Assist in improving overall communication and understanding with every member of your family unit
  5. Help you learn new ways to interact to overcome unhealthy behavioral patterns
  6. Set both individual and family goals to help you better work together on how to achieve them

Our professionals are able to identify the behaviors in the family that are causing friction and advise on what corrective therapy to pursue. You can expect several different methods to be used, potentially making each session you attend unique. These efforts are geared towards connecting on a deeper level with each family member as not everyone may open up the same way. Based on your counselor’s findings, they can create an atmosphere to invoke positive changes in attitudes, behaviors, and the overall family dynamic.
