Like the name suggests, family therapy involves members of a family who have problems getting along with each other. The family members, who can be a parent-child, husband-wife, or a single member-with entire family, are made to sit in the same room and express their grievance to each other under supervision of Dr Prashant Bhimani. In such kind of therapies, Dr Bhimani helps a family to stop blaming each other for the problem and instead helps them interact in different ways to help solve the problem.
At Healthy Minds, family therapy is often recommended if a child has a behavior problem as more often than not it is the family’s attitude and behavior that causes the child to behave in the particular manner. Eating disorders in adolescents and adjustment issues with new members of a family (for example when a newly-wed woman enters into a joint family) are often treated with family therapy.
