The family is the primary and most important group that most people will ever identify with. It is very important to understand the relationships that each family member has to the others that contribute to the functioning of the whole family system. It is also important to understand how families evolve over the life span. When there are problems, life transitions, or other issues, the healthy balance of the family system can be jeopardized. Family therapy can restore this balance. It can help the family understand which repetitive behavior patterns are resulting in instability, while teaching new behavior patterns that provide stability, health, and happiness to each family member.

Family therapy is very effective in assisting families that don't feel they are able to achieve cohesiveness alone. It can improve communication, understanding and allows for everyone to have their voice heard. Family therapy is a very powerful therapy that I recommend to anyone with interest in building healthy family relationships that also includes extended family.
