The Family Dynamics: Understanding & Resolution
Every family has its unique dynamics, roles, and patterns of interaction. Prolonged disagreements, repeated communication breakdowns, and persistent tension can strain the family bond. However, it’s essential to recognize that a family operates as a collective unit, where the actions and decisions of one member can influence the entire group. The healing and restorative process of child/youth also requires the support of parents.
Reconnecting the Family Bond Through Therapy
Family therapy seeks to rejuvenate the essence of a family by:
- Analyzing the family’s functioning, encompassing the dynamics, roles, and individual behavioral patterns.
- Educating members about different family system roles and highlighting their individual and collective responsibilities.
- Shifting the focus from viewing one member as the “problem” to understanding the family’s collective functionality.
- Identifying core points of contention, anxieties, and undesired behaviors. Subsequently, we strategize new patterning toward resolution.
- Providing support to parents psycho-education on affect regulation, co-regulation, integrated and parallel attunement skills, attachment needs, effective responses to challenging situations, active curiosity, and the use of reflection to mirror the child’s experience.
- Bolstering every family member’s confidence and involvement, ensuring everyone plays an active role in resolving family issues.
- Equipping the family with effective coping mechanisms and fostering healthy communication patterns to navigate familial conflicts and transitions.
Other areas of skill development for supporting child and youth modulation include:
Learning to be attuned
How to reflect simply on what you see
Learning effective responses
Learning to cue child/youth in the use of their skills
Supporting and engaging the child/youth in the use of skills.
