Family therapy can truly be either a saving grace or a boxing ring. For many of my uncertain clients, it’s a boxing ring full of traps, snakes, confusion, and drama. No matter how much I attempt to convince some of my clients that family therapy (depending on the kind of therapist you have) can be helpful.
The fear of the session becoming a living breathing soap opera is real.
As you watch this video, consider whether family therapy would help (even just a little) your family.
I welcome your comments and questions!
