In family therapy, everyone has to feel heard and valued. Sometimes, a family comes believing that one of them, just this one, is the problem and needs to be “fixed”. That person may come believing that they are being ganged up on and scapegoated. Usually, everyone contributes in some way to the problem. Everyone needs to be able to listen to each other and take account of each other’s point of view. Often, things can be said when someone feels that there is a therapist there to ensure a sufficient hearing, that can put things into a different perspective and allow ideas for how to address them. Feelings can be intense but if everyone can ride it out and take it in, change can happen.
