Family Therapy

Your home should be a place where you can get relief, comfort, love, and a warm home in the real sense of the word. But sometimes families can become dysfunctional, leading to broken families, crisis support, stress, confusion, mental disorders, and alcohol and substance abuse to cope with the problem.

Impact of Family Issues

With every family problem, everyone is affected. Not only the parents nor the children, but every member gets a fair share of negative effects from the addiction of one. Each member of the family can experience the following effects or symptoms:

  • Inability to express his emotions
  • Anxiety before and after separation
  • Inferiority complex
  • Isolation or seclusion
  • Trauma
  • Inability to solve problems
  • Extreme codependency
  • Increased aggression and violent behaviors

If not properly attended as soon as possible, things can get worse. When you can no longer resolve any issues in your family, it is best to hand over the problem to a reputable family therapist. Merito is a professional men’s rehab center that you can trust to fix the issue.

What is Family Therapy and How Can It Help?

A family therapy is a form of recovery treatment wherein an expert will look into the areas where members of the family are lacking in ways to solve a particular issue. Sometimes, an outsider’s eye is needed to give a fresh look at what’s really happening and what’s not. Family therapy involves evaluating the cause and effect of the problem as well as the present situation of the individual member. Whatever is seen from the evaluation, the therapist can devise an appropriate solution to the problem.

Different Methods of Family Therapy

There are different techniques or approaches that Merito offers to bring the gap closer between family members, and these include:

Communication training

Miscommunication or dysfunctional communication can lead to confusion, prolonged cold-shoulder treatment, fights, or worse. With the help of an expert family therapist, the family will be taught how to speak words that don’t hurt and criticize constructively, not destructively.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

This is an approach to change the behavior or mental outlook of a person that is causing him the problem.

Systemic Family Therapy

This form of therapy identifies every single detail that could be causing the family issue. Once tracked, the therapist will soon find ways to shift these causes to a situation that it becomes beneficial or less damaging to the family.

In order for a family therapy session to be successful, every member involved should cooperate and join the process. And beyond all of these techniques, there should be forgiveness, love, and hope to make this work.

“I describe family values as responsibility towards others, an increase of tolerance, compromise, support, flexibility. And essentially the things I call the silent song of life—the continuous process of mutual accommodation, without which, life is impossible.”
