Should I Consider Family Conflict Therapy?
Sometimes family conflict stems from an event like divorce or the loss of a family member, but there are also times when conflicts are simply rooted in miscommunications, unmet expectations or even simple misunderstandings. We all want to feel understood and supported, especially by our family, and we can work with you to re-establish a healthy family dynamic.
What Happens During Family Conflict Counseling?
Like individual therapy, we’ll personalize our approach to meet your family’s needs, but the goal of family counseling almost always involves improving communication and working towards a resolution of existing conflict in order to create the supportive, healthy family dynamic we all long for. Some of the skills we use to help families work through conflict include:
- Learning conflict resolution skills — we’ll help family members express their feelings, communicate openly, and listen actively
- Compromise — healthy compromise is essential for happy families, and we can help you learn how to find common ground to make compromises
- Boundaries — giving each other space and establishing and respecting boundaries is necessary, especially in families who share a home
- Spending time together — for fighting families, this may seem counterintuitive, but spending good, quality time with your family is important
