Many problems that children manifest impact the family and vice versa. Family therapy involves the assessment of the family’s interactions, identifying the behaviors that maintain the problems, and adapting the dynamics of the family and roles of each family member. Sometimes this includes all members or just a few members of the family.
Sometimes, all that is needed is parental support and guidance with positive parenting techniques and behavioral strategies. This can occur independently or in conjunction with child and adolescent therapy. Most child and adolescent therapy will include parent sessions to update the parents on treatment progress, discuss issues they are having at home, and provide feedback/recommendations. Parenting sessions are different in that they focus on providing parenting strategies for one or all children.
Couples therapy at Waypoint Wellness Center includes couples of all types. We help you recognize and resolve conflicts and improve your relationship with your significant other. Although we always hope that therapy will allow the couple to rebuild their relationship, it may also help the couple make the decisions about going their separate ways.
