Family Therapy Program
Family therapy is a solution based psychotherapy that can help your family improve relationships, learn how to work together effectively, and to develop new behavioral patterns. Regardless if the issue is with a child, teen, spouse, parent or sibling, Pathways Real Life Recovery in Utah can help. When working with a Utah family therapist, your whole family will learn to examine your family’s ability to problem solve and to express thoughts and feelings in a positive manner. Every family is different, with a unique social structure that only applies to them. If one member of the family has a mental illness, alcohol addiction, death, divorce, or drug addiction, family therapy can be very beneficial. When one member of a family suffers from something like this, not only can it be a product of their family life but it can also have negative effects on the whole family. This is why family therapy is such a useful tool in the therapeutic process. In the case of addiction, the affected family member may require individual residential treatment, medication management, and sometimes the rest of the family members attend a family therapy session to learn how to empower vs enable their loved one.
Benefits of Utah Family Therapy
Family Therapy can benefit a family on multiple levels, by treating the affected person in a group, along with the rest of the family. This method empowers the individual to see the effects that their behavior or condition is having on their loved ones. It also gives the family members insight into the struggle that the inflicted individual is going through, making it easier for them to understand and really help their loved one. Family therapy can be useful to treat parenting issues, marriage concerns, grief, stress, anger and more.
Guided by your Utah family therapist, your family will learn to:
- Pinpoint your specific family challenges and set family goals to achieve them
- Learn new ways to handle conflict
- Help troubled relationships
- Address specific issues
- Learn new ways to interact and overcome unhealthy patterns of relating to each other
- Learn to empower not enable those with addiction
- Explore family roles, rules and behavioral patterns
- Focus on your family’s strengths and work on the weaknesses
