At the same time, you must be able to get a clear sense of the role and competence of the therapist, the purpose of treatment, and "rules" to be observed in and outside the session, as who should attend the session and confidentiality where any information distributed between and between partners or family members and therapists. Over time, you will identify individual family roles and behaviors that contribute to conflict, identify specific challenges, and explore ways to actively solve problems.
How it works
While traditional therapy focuses more on individuals, MFT examines how individual behavior affects individuals and their relationships as part of a partner or family. The theory behind MFT is that regardless of whether a problem seems to be in individuals or in the family, making other family members involved in the therapeutic process will produce a more effective solution. MFT is goal oriented and works towards established final results.
