Family Therapy

Course Description:

We all begin life with a family composed of blood relatives, adopted parents, or a foster family. The family that we acquire when we are born, influences every aspect of our lives - from our first moments to our last - for the better or for worse. If we are born into a healthy family with healthy relationships, we are likely to learn how to maintain healthy relationships. If we are born into a dysfunctional family that struggles to connect, we may also struggle to connect with others.

While it is certainly unlucky to be born into the second kind of family, it's not an unchangeable situation. Family Therapy offers families a way to do this - a way to develop or maintain a healthy, functional family. Family Therapy is a treatment that is designed to address specific issues affecting the health and functioning of a family. It can be used to help a family through a difficult period of time, a major transition, or mental or behavioral health problems in family members.

In Family Therapy, focus is on providing all family members with tools to facilitate healing - so the therapist aims to help family members in improving communication, solving family problems, understanding and handling special family situations, and creating a better functioning home environment. Improving these skills for each member of the family increases the potential for success in addressing family problems. Ideal for counsellors and social workers.
