Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

When families learn to identify and modify maladaptive patterns of relating as they are guided into challenging inflexible roles assigned or adopted by its members, the system that the family is begins to move towards a healthier and more functional unit. Moreover, becuase, often times the person identified as the problem, is nothing but the expression of the symptoms of the family which may include ineffective distribution of power and responsibility, addressing structural issues can also contribute to transform families and turn them into safer and and more balanced.

Over the last 50 years, the family structure has changed. People are waiting longer to marry and to have children. In 2000, US Census reported that 50% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages end in divorce. About 26% of individuals find themselves in some sort of step role - stepparent, stepsibling or stepchild resulting in the blended family. Family therapy becomes the safe space where each person can communicate their perceptions and their needs. As the solution focused therapist, we become the vessel through which positive communication can be reached.

Dr. Weatherford may suggest family therapy to help the identified patient resolve his/her issues. The family unit is like a well balanced mobile. If one object on the mobile changes (or gets better) other members of the family may need to make changes or adjustments. The positive change in the family member may disrupt the balance of the family unit. Short courses of family therapy can well restore the homeostasis of the family unit and allow it to be more receptive to the changes in the identified patient.

In my practice, I often deal addiction as a "family disease." Many experts view addiction and trauma as generational issues that can best be addressed with the family as a whole. Everyone in the immediate family of the addict/alcoholic plays a roll in this family system. Maladaptive coping, denial, enabling, abandonment, and codependency are just some of the most salient components of addiction as a family disease, that I attempt to address.
