Family therapy is important because when one member is experiencing difficulties, often the entire family is affected. Family therapy may help to promote better relationships and understanding within a family. It may also assist families in learning more productive ways to resolve conflicts or to help family members communicate with each other in a more positive manner.
Family therapy provides a safe environment for members of the family to voice feelings and concerns.
Families also find therapy helpful in coping with an unexpected change or loss or in adjusting to a new situation.
