1. Family therapy or Family Counselling Aberdeen can involve one, some or all family or household members in meetings together or separately. The whole family do not need to be involved.
2. Family therapy meetings can be with individuals, parents/carers or step-parents together or apart, couples alone or together, children, children with parents/carers or step-parents, grandparents and significant others.
3. With our ageing population, we are seeing more adult 'children' and their parents regarding late-life and other issues.
4. You don't have to be a family member to be involved.
5. Who attends meetings is your decision. We can discuss what might be best for you in advance of the meeting.
6. Family therapy considers that family members and their relationships are potential resources for generating new solutions and possibilities.
7. Rather than dwelling exclusively on problems or symptoms, family therapy also explores how family members relate to each other, to the problem and its management, the impact of events outside the family and helps you rediscover and develop strengths in your relationships.
8. Family therapy can help you strengthen relationships and build resilience. Stronger family relationships will help you get through difficult times better and help your family to flourish.
9. Family therapy can move things forward in many different ways and, in a collaborative manner, adapts these to suit your needs.
10. Family therapy does not involve psychotherapists blaming family members or anyone else.
11. There is a large and growing body of research evidence supporting the effectiveness of family therapy for a wide range of problems (Dallos and Draper, 2011).
