Families are defined by the strongly supportive, long-term roles and relationships between people who may or may not be related by blood or marriage.
Family therapy is a field of therapy that works with families and couples as the focus of change and development. Family therapy focuses on the interaction between family members. It emphasizes family relationships as an important factor in psychological health.
Family therapy understands that involving families in solutions is often beneficial, and can be more effective than working with individuals.
Family therapy has been used effectively in the full range of psychological problems; there is no category of relationship or psychological problem that has not been addressed with this approach. Family therapy has been applied to substance abuse and addiction, adolescent problematic behavior such as conduct disorder and oppositional behavior, raising children with special needs such as ADHD or Autism, conflicted families, cutoffs within families, illness within a family, and a broad range of other family issues. Family therapy has been effective to help those with anxiety and/or depression.
The principles behind family therapy have been applied to a wide range of human behavior, including organizational dynamics.
