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 Troy, MI 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 Troy, MI 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?

Think back to elementary or middle school: You were likely given a family tree assignment, in which you were asked to create a diagram illustrating your relationships to your family members. Some kids are more than happy to complete this assignment, even excited to get started. Others, though, are reluctant or even unwilling to do so. It all depends on what their family and home life is like.

Family can be a tough subject. Some people are fortunate enough to grow up in a healthy and happy household, while others experience unhealthy dynamics with family members from the get-go. The good news is that there is a type of therapy designed to help people work through their problematic relationships with their family members. Family therapy can help you and your family members address the specific challenges you’re enduring right now, as well as those from the past that haunt you to this day. Family therapy can even help you and your family members learn how to better communicate or problem solve, so that you are better prepared for future challenges.

Working Through Family Problems with a Family Therapist

To echo the definition of family therapy above, family therapy focuses on helping families work through their unique challenges and improve relationships with one another. The ultimate mission is to help each individual live better and also advance the family unit as a whole. Common family problems discussed in family therapy include those that come up during major life transitions (such as moving to a new city and starting a new job) or particularly stressful circumstances. Here are some specific challenges that are commonly discussed with our family therapists:

  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Other mental illnesses
  • Grief and loss, after a loved one’s death
  • Divorce or separation in the family
  • Behavioral problems in children or teens
  • Financial strain
  • Parenting conflicts

Some of the items on the list above are seen as individual problems. While they might start at the individual level, they often have negative effects on the family as a whole. Therefore, family therapy can prove to be an effective approach to treatment, even if it is supplemental treatment.

Whatever it is your family might be going through, the family therapists at Thriveworks Troy Counseling will use their skills, knowledge, and experience to help you work through it.

I've known Andrea for a number of years. Working with children is her passion. She just loves kids and will work diligently to achieve any child and parental goals. A firm believer that early detection/ treatment of childhood problems is the key for the development into a healthy adult. She works closely with parents and family members, as they play a crucial role in the child's successes. Always interested in expanding her knowledge base and keeps informed of new information related to her specialities. An extremely good listener and communicator that takes an active role in working with children and their family. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone that is seeking an experienced counselor for their child.
