MEDICAL FAMILY THERAPY

attempts to combine the doctrines of psychotherapy and biopsychosocial systems in the context of a family situation to help other members of the family in constant contact with the patient to better cope and deal with their conditions and needs.

MEDICAL FAMILY THERAPY: "Many therapies concentrate on the patients solely, whilst medical family therapy involves all parties involved including the family of the patient."
