Family therapy is a type of counseling that helps family members improve communication and resolve conflicts.
Family therapy is usually provided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed counselor. These professionals have graduate or postgraduate degrees in a psychology/human services related field.
Family therapy is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.
