When facilitated by a skilled and trained therapist like those at BHSA, family conflict therapy can help improve troubled relationships between partners, children or other family members. Sessions may address specific issues, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family.
Family counseling can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, grief, anger, or conflict and many families find healing and hope at BHSA. Through healthy dialog, family members can better understand one another and learn valuable coping skills, which bring families closer. Many families find it helpful to pursue family therapy in conjunction with other types of mental health treatment, especially if one family member has a mental illness or addiction that also requires additional therapy or rehabilitation treatment.
