Family Counseling Can Help
Parents and troubled teens need skills to be able to live together effectively. Adolescence is a time when children are changing into adults, a process which can challenge and stress the ability of the family to cope.
Parents need the skills to set and enforce clear boundaries. Teens need to be able to discover and communicate their own boundaries.
- Assertiveness. Each family member needs to be able to state their needs in a healthy way.
- Listening. Each family member needs to be able to listen to other family members and understand what they are saying.
- Family Dynamics. Your therapist can help you identify and change dysfunctional family dynamics.
- Responsibility. Children need to develop a sense of responsibility.
- Strengthening the Family. Everyone in the family, including the children, needs to understand their role in the family and how they contribute.
