Family Therapy

It is now generally accepted that families interact in a circular fashion and when there is understanding, empathy and good communication the stresses are dealt with in a constructive way. However, when parents separate there is often no empathy, distorted communication and overreaction so problems are not dealt with very constructively. Because of the circular interaction all family members can be implicated in problems which tend to escalate.

Family therapists can support families going through separation and divorce by finding constructive ways to resolve difficulties by promoting understanding. The Association for Family Therapy is on my blog roll and here is their explanation about what family therapy is.
