Family psychotherapy - what is it?
In every family there are conflicts and crises that result from differences in views, needs or priorities between its members. After all, we are all different, so it’s perfectly normal that we just don’t get along sometimes. However, if family quarrels are frequent, no one wants to compromise, and with each successive quarrel the atmosphere grows thicker, family therapy may be the solution. Find out what such therapy is and what effects it gives.
Family therapy is one of the forms of psychological help intended for families. Joint psychotherapy is to help identify problems faced by people close to each other and indicate their causes. All family members are involved in the conversation with the psychotherapist. During the meetings, they talk about the difficulties they encounter in their mutual relations.
Psychotherapy, in which all family members participate, is based on the assumption that the family creates a system. When one of the elements of the system, i.e. one person, has any problems, it has a negative impact on the others, which causes conflicts and misunderstandings. Considering the problems of one family member is not always sufficient. Sometimes you have to look at how the whole system works and only then you can determine what is wrong with it.
What are the indications for family psychotherapy?
Relatives should use the help of a psychotherapist when there are frequent quarrels, conflicts and misunderstandings between them. When the cause of these problems is difficult to identify, which makes it impossible to eliminate it, and when the causes of them are known, but still difficult to deal with.
Families most often come to therapy when their members:
- are experiencing a crisis caused by a difficult event,
- have difficulties with mutual recognition of needs,
- there are communication problems,
- they lack closeness, mutual support and understanding,
- they do not feel connected with each other,
- they are constantly arguing with each other,
- do not show willingness to contact each other,
- they cannot communicate with each other even in simple matters,
- have a problem accepting the new situation they find themselves in.

- there are educational problems with children,
