Family therapy is a type of therapy where the intervention focuses on the relationships between family members. It can be the main treatment or can complement individual treatments for addiction or other issues.
The therapist identifies what family dynamics are contributing to children behaviors or other problems. It helps to resolve conflicts and improve communication.
Some meetings can be for the whole family while others can be arranged for different subgroups (children, one parent with one child, individual appointments) to address topics and issues that relate to the family therapy work.
