Family Therapy

Family Therapy

Every family has issues, but sometimes things can spiral out of control. According to the CDC, problems such as drug abuse, mental illness, and miscommunication creates tension.

These problems build up and at some point create massive disruptions in the home, at work, and at school.

The best way to address these challenges is to go to family therapy. Here are some insights on what is involved and how family therapy can help you.

Family Therapy

For example, if the parents are fighting, children are adversely affected by the stress and tension. Many times children will lash out and cause problems that make things worse. The children are scared about what is happening and don’t know what to do. The only avenue of drawing attention to these concerns is to cause problems.

Your therapist works with everyone to understand their roles and how each member contributes to the situation. Open discussions take place where you sit and listen to what the other members are saying.

Your family therapist is the coordinator of these conversations and keeps everything going in the right direction.

Banyan Counseling Group can help at any of our five offices located through Palm Beach County. We serve Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, and Royal Palm Beach.

Typically, therapy is sought out for situations such as divorce, death, financial hardships, and breakdowns in communication.

The causes of the problems at home are hiding other challenges impacting one or all of the family members. These include things such as

Your family therapist creates an environment where everyone collaborates and understands what is happening. The therapist looks at the patterns that are unfolding and how this is influencing the family’s relationships.
