Family Therapy and The Role of The Family Therapist

Family therapy is not like conventional therapies. They have a specific aim, and serve for answering and resolving critical family problems and issues. Family therapy in other words is just like psychotherapy or counseling sessions.

Are you aware of Family therapy?

Family therapy (in Denmark it’s called hjælpsom parterapi) is not like conventional therapies. They have a specific aim, and serve for answering and resolving critical family problems and issues. Family therapy in other words is just like psychotherapy or counseling sessions.  A family is basically like a system and the members of the family play different roles in it. They may be conflicting with each other on ideas and desires. This creates a predicament and nothing else. In the family therapy sessions, the whole family is considered as an individual. Unfortunately, we have been experiencing relationship dynamics. The most critical issue is seen in a couple, in the parent-child relationship, and other family conflicts.

Role of the family therapist:

The person who takes out the suffering family out of the problems is called the family therapist. These people are seriously doing a noble job. They try their best to solve the issues of the families and bring them back to life where they can live happily and calmly. The job of a family therapist is to tell each of the family members that the family is like an individual entity. All the roles which each member possesses are equally important and effective. The main job of the therapist is to remove the communication and interaction gap between the members. The therapist makes them realize that each member of the family is really important to the others. In short, they play an essential role in creating happy families.

Well, family therapy sessions are conducted in regular intervals. With the help of certain activities and directed behavior the family therapist achieves the aim of solving all the issues. However, the task of the family therapist gets very tough if the family fails to cooperate.

Usefulness of Family therapy:

Teenagers are very moody and they want to do whatever they feel like. At this age, the fight and conflict between parents and children is nothing new or unusual. Usually children are involved in mischievous acts, bad company of certain friends, drug addiction and other issues etc. Such relations are very sensitive. They need to be handled very carefully. Therefore, the family therapy comes up with different types of techniques so that this particular issue can be solved easily. Other social issues and the behavior of the children can also be worked out with the assistance of a family therapist.
