Understanding Family Therapy
Family therapy looks to help all family unit members effectively understand each other, permanently adopt any negative behaviors, patterns and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is appropriate for all ages, from children to adults.
Families can be a complicated situation. Every one of us is unique; as we grow, we all have our own life experiences that change our perspective and outlook on how we view life. When you throw family dynamics into the mix, the unit can quickly become somewhat volatile, continuously escalating until effective communication is achieved.

There are a variety of family therapy styles available here at Park Mental Health. Depending on the severity of the family issues and the recommendation of our therapists will ultimately determine the type of therapy you may be offered. Below we have listed a few types that may be included:
This type of therapy treatment centers on helping the family individual better understand mental health conditions in general and specific mental health illnesses present within the unit. When the family works together to understand mental health, the treatment options, medication, and self-help approach, the family becomes a unit and will begin flourishing as a cohesive support system.
Functional System Therapy:
A family-based intervention and prevention program specifically targeted high-risk youths who struggle with substance abuse, risky behavior, or violence. Functional system therapy will aid teenagers or young adults and families looking for identity solutions while building a base layer of respect and trust for each individual within the family unit.
Narrative Family Therapy:
This type of family therapy incorporates a method that will separate the family member from their problems. The therapist will allow each individual to tell their perspective of the story to understand how the experience is viewed in their eyes and relate that to other members in the family. This method encourages each individual to rely on their skills to minimize the problems within their lives. Individuals will begin to view their problems more objectively.
Family System Therapy:
This specific type of approach will focus on helping the family members utilize the strengths of their relationship to overcome any form of mental health issues that they may be struggling with.
Supportive Family Therapy:
Supportive family therapy will focus heavily on creating a safe environment in which any and all family members can openly express how they are feeling and think and receive practical support from their family members.
