Since each individual is part of a “system” or part of a family that functions by maintaining all of its various parts it is often vitally important to have some type of family therapy involved even in the context of working with an individual. Your family may pursue family therapy along with other types of mental health treatment, especially if one of you has a mental illness or addiction that also requires additional therapy or rehabilitation treatment.
At Renaisense, family therapy typically brings several family members together for therapy sessions. However, a family member may also see a family therapist individually. Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring you closer together.
