Family Systems Therapy
Family systems therapy utilizes a comprehensive assessment of not only the identified patient system, but of all family members, significant others and community organizations involved in the identified patient’s life. This approach provides valuable insight into the health of the interactions and relationships within the family system as a whole. Interventions focus on a common goal and identify necessary changes for both individuals within the family and the family as a unit. Family Systems Therapy can be effective in situations in which other approaches may have failed due to unidentified barriers within the family unit.
