Family Therapy
Family therapy can be described as a therapeutic intervention that focuses on altering the interactions between and among family members and seeks to improve the functioning of the family as a unit and the functioning of the individual members of the family.

Family therapy has several goals: 

  • – Resolve or reduce conflict and anxiety within interpersonal relationships, 
  • – Enhance the perception and fulfillment by family members of one another’s emotional needs, 
  • – Promote appropriate role relationships between the sexes and generations,
  • – Strengthen the capacity of individual members and the family as a whole to cope with stressors in the outside environment
