FAMILY THERAPY

involves the whole family becoming involved in the counselling process, instead of focussed efforts looking at a single individual, indeed, counsellors will attempt to actively repair inter-familial relationships in a mediatory role.

FAMILY THERAPY: "There is a range of therapies which are undertaken by families; family therapy focusses on the family unit as a whole, instead of a single person."
