Family on a therapy

Why Family Therapy?

Christian Family Therapy brings parents, siblings, and extended family members such as aunts, uncles, and grandparents into the treatment process. The family system has its own structure and patterns of communication, which may be defined by parenting style, personalities, and other influences.

Every individual is, in part, a product of the environment they grew up in.

Family plays an important role in our emotional, physical, and spiritual development since each individual in the family system impacts and is impacted by the others. For example, one person’s illness can change the lives and interactions of all the other family members.
Family therapy may be helpful to:

  • Resolve a specific issue
  • Prepare the family for a major life change such as a divorce or remarriage
  • Address the role that family plays in an individual’s life

Depending on the unique needs and goals of the family, different combinations of family members may participate in each therapy session. The family therapist may give family members assignments to begin addressing some of the challenges identified during therapy.
