Family therapy is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that works to help people overcome individual and group issues in the context of a family. Family dynamics often play a large role in shaping who we are and who we will become. They provide early examples of how to love and interact with others, and they model rituals, customs, and habits that often influence our relationships later in life. A healthy family dynamic promotes healthy habits, but dysfunctional ones may promote the opposite. Family therapy offers the space and tools necessary to address familial problems effectively. Within a family therapy framework, the therapist’s understanding of the group dynamic is crucial.
