Family therapy can help you improve troubled relationships with your partner, children, or other family members. You may address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, a conflict between parents and children, between siblings, or the impact of a member's substance abuse or mental illness on the family.
Your family may pursue family therapy along with other types of mental health treatment, especially if one of you has a mental illness or addiction that also requires additional therapy or rehabilitation treatment. For example:
- Family therapy can help family members cope if a relative has a severe mental illness such as schizophrenia — but the person who has schizophrenia should continue with his or her individualized treatment plan, which often includes medication and one-on-one therapy.
- In the case of addiction, the family can attend therapy together. In contrast, the person who has an addiction participates in residential treatment. Sometimes the family may participate in therapy together even if the person with an addiction hasn't sought out his or her treatment.
Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger, or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to strengthen your relationships.
