Family Therapy as a Solution to Create Peace in Family Conflict
Every family has its own growth where each one will learn how to interact with each other in a healthy way and also how to react to the rest of the world. In the process of growing up and living with each other, family conflict sometimes would arise due to uncontrollable situations among themselves, and this is when family therapy would come in to assist the situation.
It is usually evident during family therapy that certain happenings would signal a kind of family growth that may be seen as off to the standard that the family wants to live by. 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. Or maybe two members in the family are always getting into an argument with each other, or another one is disturbing peace or is a bothersome, etc.
It is therefore important to find out the reasons underlying the behaviour of the disturber. 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.
These disturbances that are creating imbalance in a family called conflict has to be intercepted with a new approach and this is called family therapy.
The form of psychotherapy that aims to solve family issues is called family therapy and this is done through family counselling. All family members are involved in this technique of family treatment since the family is considered as one unit. Members who are directly involved in the problem are given emphasis during the therapy sessions. Family concerns like marriage, divorce, children-parent relationships, family conflicts, depression, addictions and others will be generally handled by a family therapists. Note that the focus of family therapy is on the relationship of the family and the interaction within the members of the family. Instead of pinpointing the cause of the conflict, the family therapist will look at the solution of the issue by emphasizing the strength of the family as a whole.
The resolution of conflicts within family members will be resolved through effective communication that the family therapist will help make way and thus gaps are minimized in the process. The family therapist will analyze and see if conducts are to be changed within the members with explanations on the why and the how of situations.
Regular sessions are therefore necessary for a family therapist to conduct in order to give importance and be able to convince a willing participation among members to resolve the various issues.
