“Family therapy is a form of therapy that seeks to reduce distress and conflict by improving the systems of interactions between family members. While family therapists often seek to have all family members (affected by the problem) in the room, that is not always possible or necessary. What distinguishes family therapy from individual counseling is its perspective or framework, not how many people are present at the therapy session. This type of counseling views problems as patterns or systems that need adjusting instead of viewing problems as residing in the person. This is why family therapy is often called a “strengths-based treatment.” Some common reasons for seeking family therapy include the following:
- When a child is having problems such with school, substance abuse, or disordered eating
- A significant trauma or change that impacts the entire family ( i.e., relocation, natural disaster, incarceration of a family member)
- The unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member
- Adjustment to a new family member in the home (i.e., the birth of a sibling, adoption, foster children, a grandparent entering the house)
- Domestic violence
- Parent conflict
