What can I expect from family therapy?
First, family therapists want to hear from each person in the family. We want everyone to be able to express their feelings and concerns.
Next, your therapist will help your family create a common goal so that everyone is aware of why they are in therapy, and they will know what to expect.
As you work toward your goal, your therapist will focus on the way your family talks to one another and will coach family members through difficult conversations as you learn to share your thoughts, hear each other’s perspectives, and stay connected emotionally.
When family members learn new ways of relating to each other, a new experience happens, where connection grows, and problems become easier to work through.
