Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Family Counseling focuses on meeting the needs of a family unit by looking at the individual relationships within the family and developing more positive bonds. Family counseling can use some of the techniques and methods described in individual counseling. However, they are adapted to working with multiple people. In family counseling, negative themes and patterns that cause the family conflict are identified to change. Individual members of the family usually have an expected role that can affect behaviors toward the other members. As family members recognize their role, they can better understand how this role affects one another. Then therapy works on improving communication, conflict resolution, behavioral dynamics, and verbal expression of thoughts and feelings within the family unit.
