Family Therapy

The purpose of family therapy is to help improve relationships, communication, and functioning among members of a family. The Family Therapists at Palmetto Counseling may also assist family members to develop a better understanding of a loved one’s mental health disorder; which can help the individual and family learn ways to cope, manage, and treat the condition.

As part of the process, a family therapist can help identify patterns of maladaptive communication, negative interaction, and teach the family to use adaptive coping skills to change these negative patterns. Family therapy can bring about positive change, develop understanding, and explore ways to improve relationships within the family and resolve conflict.
