Family Systems Therapy
Family systems therapy is based on Murray Bowen's family systems theory, which holds that individuals are inseparable from their network of relationships. Furthermore, it is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families and couples to nurture change and development.
Family systems therapy emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health. This therapy views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members. Problems can be resolved in the context of the family unit, where many issues are likely to begin.
This therapy encourages family members to work together to better understand the group dynamic as well as how their individual actions affect one another and the family unit as a whole. Family systems therapy believes that what happens to one member of a family happens to everyone in the family. This therapy allows the opportunity to express personal thoughts and feelings while exploring ways to support and help one another, relieving strain on the family.
The goal of this therapy is to restore family relationships and rebuild a healthy family system.
