Family Systems Therapy 

Family systems therapy is a short-term form of psychotherapy developed to help resolve conflicts that stem from the family unit. In family systems therapy, each member works together to understand the family dynamic and how their role affects the family unit. During the treatment process, the therapist may work with family members individually or together as a group. Families dealing with the effects of depression, addiction, anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, food-related disorders, or schizophrenia can benefit from family systems therapy. However, any family experiencing any struggle that stems from the group may seek out family systems therapy for guidance. Family systems therapists can treat individuals of all ages, couples, and family groups. Those who are undergoing family systems therapy can also benefit from experiencing another form of treatment. The process generally takes about 12 sessions, but the exact number depends entirely on the complexity of the clients’ situation.
