Family Therapy is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families and couples in intimate relationships to nurture change and development.
It emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health.
Regardless of the origin of the problem, or whether the client considers it an “individual” or “family” issue, involving all or some of the family members in the solution, often benefits clients.
This involvement of family members is commonly accomplished by their direct participation in the therapy session.
It is also helpful for families dealing with separation or divorce as all of the family members attend the sessions to work out issues.
