Family therapy involves work with families and family members. Not only do they work with the whole family, but also with individuals, couples and other people and professionals involved such as doctors, teachers and family friends. Family therapists consider individuals within their family and other personal relationships. These people add meaning and support to life.
The types of problems family therapists work with include relationship difficulties, divorce and separation, illness in parents or children, bereavement, school and college difficulties and other life-changes that cause upset and pain.
Family therapists help individuals who feel they have been damaged by their family experiences. They work with specific conditions (in association with other professionals) such as anorexia, bulimia, ADHD, depression, encopresis, enuresis and other conditions affecting family life.
