Therapy for families and couples
Therapy for family
Family creates a system composed of individual members. Just as there are no two identical persons, there are no identical families. Family members are bounded by family rules. Those rules define functioning of each person, relations among them, goals which they pursue, how they intend to achieve them and what on the way to achieve them is necessary and what is inadvisable. Family shapes the attitudes, expectations, values and goals of family and its members. It is of most importance that the family rules are humane. Not every family which suffers from stress and difficulties is a family affected by addiction of one of its member, but every family affected by addiction of one of its member, is a family living under stress.
Family therapy is a form of psychological support, which includes not only the person experiencing certain difficulties but all its members living together. A person who needs psychological help e.g. child reaching for alcohol or other psychoactive substances affects the relationships between family members, and the family has an impact on the success of individual therapeutic process. Family therapy can help to understand deeply the source of the problem, with which the family comes to us, the relationships between family members (parents and children). During the session, each member of the family has the opportunity to present its point of view on the problem and re-build mutual understanding, trust, communication and cooperation. During the first two consultations a therapist gets acquainted with a family recognizing the problem, family’s motivation and expectations. If the family members decide to work together we sign the contract - (all family members), we set the goal of the sessions, their number, frequency, and rules of cancellation of meetings.
