We provide education around the impact of substance and mental health issues on the family. Parent education and training will be provided. We have experienced clinicians who worked in the school system for many years, and are well equipped to facilitate a family session to address acculturation issues and improve communication within a family.
What you can expect:
Family therapy typically brings several family members together for therapy sessions. However, a family member may also see a family therapist individually. Sessions typically take about 50 minutes to an hour. Family therapy is often short-term — generally about 12 sessions. However, how often you meet and the number of sessions you'll need will depend on your family's particular situation and the therapist's recommendation.
During family therapy, you can:
Examine your family's ability to solve problems and express thoughts and emotions in a productive manner
Explore family roles, rules, and behavior patterns to identify issues that contribute to conflict — and ways to work through these issues
Identify your family's strengths, such as caring for one another, and weaknesses, such as difficulty confiding in one another
