People tend to look at the problem as inner one or as it is caused by others; it is difficult to consider that the problem may arise from the relationships that are created BETWEEN the people.
Family therapy may be a useful tool in the event of conflict between the parents, between parents and children, between siblings or other relatives as couple’s parents, other family members, etc.. Practice of family therapy is recommended not only in the presence of conflict, but it can be useful for more or less serious difficulties of one or more children or another family member, such as eating disorders, social withdrawal, depression, uncontrollable anger, difficulty in the separation, and more.
It is very useful for problems of children and adolescents and in cases where it is difficult to reach a new equilibrium due to evolutionary moments of households (transition to the “family background”, children leaving the family, care of elderly parents, etc.) or transformations that the family has gone through (bereavement, trauma, separation, reconstituted families, extended families, etc.).
The goal of family therapy is, therefore, to support the change in a person’s life, modification in the structure of the family and to observe the way they behave and relate to those belonging to the same family.
