Family problems can manifest in the healthiest of families, resulting in challenging, frustrating, and painful interactions among family members.
Family problems that can challenge a household consists of: – Financial issues – Grief – Substance abuse -Separation/ Divorce – Illness
Whichever the case may be, family dynamics can greatly interfere with the functioning of every family member, including extended family, although those living in the same household are likely to be impacted more significantly than those who live apart.
All families are different, and the ups and downs of family life have a huge effect on children and young people. The love and support children feel from parents and relatives will give them the strength to grow and develop. But all families go through difficult times and some children and young people can find it hard to get on with parents or siblings.
Working with a therapist, families can expect to learn to understand one another better, communicate more effectively, and work proactively to disrupt unhealthy patterns.
