Arguments and disagreements are reasonably standard in families, and no unit is free from its dysfunctions. Therapy can help you navigate relationships and changing family dynamics more easily. For example, amidst a divorce or when integrating two families with younger children after remarriage, you can use collective therapy as a means to improve your relationships.
It can also be useful for families facing particularly challenging situations related to conflict, trauma, anger, grief, and loss. Specific traumatic incidents such as the death of a loved one or moving can take a toll on your family, and some members might feel neglectful and resentful.
Therapy can be where you can cultivate a space where family members can express themselves without feeling judged or holding their emotions against one another. It also allows you to hold space for each other and come closer during emotionally turbulent times instead of turning against one another.
Therapy can help you with the following:
You will be able to solve problems productively and come closer to one another.
You will explore and identify unhealthy patterns of behavior and work through them.
You will be able to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of your family and learn to appreciate the former and work on the latter.
