Individuals come into the world as part of a dynamic system that we call family--it can be biological, social, and cultural. Nevertheless, family is who we call "our people." These are the people who theoretically have our back in life to make sure that as part of the group, the family, each make it in life.
Yet, as life would have it, family is not perfect or ideal for most people. Three major elements that are core to the workability of family dynamics are trust, belonging and care.
Family therapy should aim to cultivate the presence of these core elements in a family. Basic social brain science education, communication skill building, and connecting behavior activities are key.
