A child’s behavioral or mental health problems affect significant others and all family members. Family therapy is an essential element of treatment for the child or adolescent. When family members are involved in treatment with the child, the rate of improvement in mental health is increased significantly.
The goals of family therapy include helping the family members/significant others better understand the child’s problem, the stages of treatment and how the family dynamics affect the child’s prognosis. Issues of responsibility and accountability are explored and clarified.
Family therapy may involve married couples, parent-child relationships, extended family relationships and sibling relationships. Care conferences with program staff may initiate this therapy with outpatient therapy follow-up encouraged.
