Family Systems Therapy

Family Systems Therapy suggests that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another, but rather as a part of their family. The family is an emotional unit. If any member of the family has an issue, it is viewed as the symptom of the family. Families differ somewhat in their degree of interdependence on each other, but one person’s functioning is predictably followed by reciprocal changes in the functioning of others. A qualified therapist will have knowledge of how the emotional system operates in one’s family and new and more effective options for solving problems can be useful in helping the family as a whole.

I like to use systemic thinking to view the family as an emotional unit which evaluates the parts of a system in relation to the whole. When systems thinking is applied to families, it suggests behavior is both often informed by and inseparable from the functioning of one's family of origin.

My approach is always trying to bring a member of the family, a friend or someone significant, or maybe people that are longer here, but maybe the type of attachment, relationship can help understand current situations.
