It is normal for family members to have misunderstandings sometimes; after all, they are different individuals who have different views and personalities. However, when the issues seem difficult to deal with, it may be time to seek the support of a family therapist. Family therapists can serve as mediators of communication for the family and guide them as they engage in open communication where everyone is given a chance to talk and be listened to. Family therapy may involve activities that are aimed at strengthening communication and understanding within its members.
With group therapy, a group of clients gathers with a therapist, and members will be given a chance to share their experiences and listen to others. This type of therapy helps individuals feel supported and learn from other people’s experiences. The therapist mediates the sessions, making sure that everyone has the chance to share and listen.
