When Should You Seek Professional Help?

Is your family facing challenges that affect the well-being of family members?

Ask yourself whether your family needs support to:

  • Communicate effectively
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Address challenging behaviors
  • Cope with mental health issues
  • Deal with changing family dynamics or behaviors

If stress, tension, isolation, or disconnection spoils your home life, seeking professional support can be helpful.

The therapeutic process shows you how to change your family routines and behavior patterns. With the assistance of a professional, your family or family member can work together to improve your individual and collective well-being.

Can Family Therapy Help if your Adolescent has Mental Health Concerns?

Adolescents often struggle with mental health issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, or behavioral problems. These concerns can impact their daily lives and relationships with family members.

Family therapy is highly beneficial when a child or troubled teen has mental health concerns. It provides a safe, supportive environment where the whole family can work together to address the teen’s mental health and promote recovery. It creates a positive and supportive environment which can lead to adolescent well-being.

Our therapists’ expert knowledge can guide and support families and parents navigating complex mental health issues. At Clearfork Academy, we lead by example. We can help your extended family develop skills and new strategies to promote your teen’s long-standing well-being.

What Therapy Techniques are Used in Family Therapy for Teens?

We employ various approaches when dealing with family therapy for teens. These include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) identifies and changes negative patterns of thinking and behaving that contribute to family problems.
  • DBT therapy – Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT therapy) is an evidence-based talk therapy for children, teenagers, and adults that helps manage intense emotions that lead to problematic behaviors.
  • Narrative therapy helps your family members re-write and re-frame negative life narratives about themselves and their relationships to develop empowering outlooks.
  • Solution-focused therapy emphasizes the strengths and resources within your family and implements practical solutions for your challenges.
  • Systemic therapy views the family as a system and focuses on the connectivity and patterns of behavior between your family members to promote change.

These therapies create a bespoke psychotherapeutic approach to meet your family’s specific needs and the challenges of each family member and person.
