Because the life of a teenager can often seem pretty turbulent from the outside, it can be difficult to figure out whether or not a parent should be worried. This is why we offer both individual and family adolescent services here at Genesis Therapy Center. We have over 25 years of experience serving families and children, and we want to help you and your teen through adolescence.
One of the most effective techniques we use in adolescent family therapy is referred to as a “Family Systems” approach. This style of therapy is based upon the idea that our families are the largest influences we have in our lives, and the interactions we have with family members significantly shape who we are and who we will become.
In family therapy, the therapist takes a leadership role and attempts to address family issues using a variety of different techniques, with the overall goal being a restructured family with a definitive hierarchy. For close-knit families, this may mean an establishment of boundaries and an encouragement of individual pursuits, while less engaged families are pushed to break down some of their individual boundaries and work together as a unit.
