Family Therapy Program
Family Therapy is an approach used to foster change and growth in couples, families and those in intimate relationships.
Family Therapy at Fourmula
The root causes of each individual’s behavioral/emotional issues may be in the family dynamic. When one member of the family unit is going through turmoil it can impact the entire family. Having family support and involvement throughout the healing process is a major benefit for each client. Keeping family members involved is an approach that can make a world of difference for the individual attending treatment, as well as the entire family unit. At The Fourmula, we excel at treating both the client and their family as a whole.
We use the following therapies to work on identified problems in the family:
- Mindfulness Therapy helps the client focus on painful or troubling events, thoughts or feelings without being overwhelmed by them. This type of therapy works to reduce reactivity based on past events and allows the client, and members of the family to be “present in today”.
- Problem Solving/Solution Focused Therapy is a treatment approach that focuses on identifying specific problems impacting the person’s life, and developing multiple solutions for each one. Each solution is evaluated openly by all therapy participants, and the best course of action is selected and implemented.
- Social Skills Training teaches relationship skills based on honesty and respect. Social skills training helps clients form and maintain friendships and other close relationships in a healthy, respectful way.
The Fourmula Approach
Each family is a system unto itself that has its own patterns of feelings and communication. Family dynamics are based on parental values, history and beliefs, as well as the influence of extended family members. Involving the family in the treatment process is essential, as changes in one family member can impact the entire family system. Most reports suggest that treatment for anyone struggling with mental health issues or substance abuse problems becomes more effective when the entire family is involved.
Keeping the Family Involved
Family workshops are provided to help educate and assist family members with issues identified during treatment. Family workshops focus on family dynamics and interpersonal communication in relationships, as well as nutrition and exercise.
We offer programs that provide a framework for navigating life’s challenges, while also adapting to the needs of each individual.Learn More
