Have family issues? You’re not alone! Family counseling is a growing answer to stressors or relationship issues that affect you, your spouse and marriage, your children or parents, siblings, or other family members.
Families of today appear quite different than those of past generations. The typical nuclear two-parent family is no longer the norm. The modern family may consist of a single parent or a blend of two or more families as the result of remarriages. Today’s families may also consist of diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural attitudes among its members. Each of these situations brings forth its own set of challenges that can be overwhelming, and result in stressed relationships and dysfunction.
Other factors that can be addressed through family therapy include:
- Unstable economy
- Job loss
- Issues of infertility
- Caring for aging family members
Family and couples therapy focuses on building healthy relationships within each family system. The focus is not on one individual member, but the entire group that is the family. Family therapy can complement other relationship counseling, like marriage counseling, as stress on a family or from family members often affects your closest relationships.
