What is family therapy?

Family Therapy aims to help the family reorganize itself in the face of a challenge, transform their relationships and facilitate communication, leading to changes in the way they think, feel and interact. In systemic family intervention the skills of each element and the resources of the family itself are activated in order to find satisfactory solutions and strategies to deal with family conflicts and tensions.
