Family therapy is an integral component of mental health treatment plans for teens and young adults.

Family therapy for teens & young adults

Family therapy is a type of counseling that involves the entire family system rather than just the individual enrolled in a virtual intensive outpatient program. The goal of family therapy is to identify the root causes of the patient’s mental health concerns and gain a better understanding of how everyone is feeling in the family.

Practitioners can assist family members in several ways in family therapy, including conflict mediation, communication, anger management, and relationship building. Over time, families can reconnect as a solid unit instead of being stuck in conflict with each other.
