Family therapy helps clients work toward a family environment that is both stable and peaceful. This approach views the family as a unit where each member’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours impact the family as a whole.
The goal of family therapy is to develop and strengthen resources and help family members work together as they implement solutions to their problems. This is achieved through improving communication and problem-solving abilities. Each member of the family will learn how to best support the others and develop patterns of relating that foster understanding and unity.
