Family therapy is a form of treatment involving several or all family members in therapy sessions. Sessions allow individuals to better understand their thoughts, feelings and actions and how these interact and impact others in their family. When children are involved in the treatment, therapists may facilitate arts, games, role-plays, and other age-appropriate activities to engage the children, while also collaborating with the family as a whole. The goal is to increase the family’s ability to bounce back after setbacks, utilize effective and collaborative problem-solving, and view each other as safe, trustworthy and reliable.
