Family Therapy as a Solution to Create Peace in Family Conflict
Each member of a family has to learn how to grown as a group and interact with each other in a healthy way and also to the outside world. Sometimes in the process, they cannot do it on their own to the point that they need an intervention during family conflict, and this can be done through family therapy.
Through family therapy, it would appear that there is something new that is developing within the family that signifies family growth and would sometimes be viewed as a difference. It could be that one person in the family is turning to be super sensitive, is always easily upset, may feel left out, or maybe in trouble in school, and so on. Furthermore, members may notice that two people in the family seems to be of heated argument with each other, and somebody is annoying other people which other members would wish to stop, and others.
The reasons why the disturber is doing such things are important therefore to be known. It is a fact that people do not act with no reasons at all, meaning, there must be something that they desperately need to attain or know that made them act that way, and if they are not satisfied, then they feel hurt and frustrated.
It is with these examples that are causing disturbance to a family and something different has to be brought in like family therapy to solve these kinds of family conflicts.
Family therapy is described as a form of psychotherapy with the objective of solving family conflicts through family counselling. All family members are involved in this technique of family treatment since the family is considered as one unit. There will be more emphasis given on the members who are involved in the conflict during the therapy. Among the family issues that will be handled by the family therapist are marriage, divorce, children-parent relationships, family conflicts, depression, addictions and other similar incidents. Note that the focus of family therapy is on the relationship of the family and the interaction within the members of the family. Therefore, the focus of the family therapist would be on the solution of the issue through emphasis on the strengths of the family unit and not the cause.
In order to resolve conflicts, a family therapist will help family members by teaching effective communication and aim to minimize gaps between each member. Situations will be analyzed by the family therapists and if need be, will change the conduct of the members while explaining to them why and how it should be done.
In order to resolve specific concerns, the family therapist has to conduct regular sessions, and this will give importance and convince each to willingly participate and solve the matters on hand.
