Family Group Counseling
Marital and family counseling offers face-to-face interaction between a counselor(s) and multiple client/family units. Family group counseling may actively involve members of the identified client's immediate or extended family or significant others.
Family group counseling promotes greater understanding of substance abuse or dependency and problems associated with or encountered by the client. The intended outcome from such family-oriented psychotherapeutic services is the management, reduction and resolution of the idetified client problem. The group process provides commonality of experience and allows the counselor to address the needs of several clients at the same time.
Depending on the needs of the client/family unit, various therapy methods may be involved.
