Systemic Family Practice is a therapeutic intervention which supports relationships and communication between those important people in your life. This model recognises that there are multiple factors that are potentially influencing on your mental health. This can include school, family dynamics, gender, race as well as many other important aspects of someone’s life.
Within this piece of work you may identify unhealthy patterns of behaviour and communication. You will then explore how these are being maintained by individuals and the systems around you. Those who are in the room are invited to take an active part in working together to recognise their roles and responsibilities within your life. The practitioner will remain in a neutral position encouraging equality within the room.
You will then be supported to work together to develop new healthier patterns with those you have a relationship with, encouraged to try something different and develop new skills together to improve your difficulties. There may be times when you will be offered to reflect upon the discussions in the session, some thoughts about what was shared and areas you thought were important to remain focused on. There could possibly be another therapist in the room to offer further thoughts and thinking on the progress that is being made.
The therapist will often use a range of skills throughout your therapy that is helpful to you and the difficulties that are being shared. Identifying an approach, a method and a technique in which they will use with you in order to support making changes.
