Family conflict arises in every family. Households are rife with financial turmoil, differing opinions that turn into convictions, and inadequate communication. Mismanagement of emotions easily can turn into aggression, and firmly held beliefs can make it difficult to come to negotiations. Family therapy seeks to correct or strengthen both verbal and nonverbal communication.

Benefits of Family Therapy

Causes of family conflict are usually transitory in nature, including big life changes such as the birth of a child, moving, or divorce. Peaceful compromises are difficult to come upon, and arguments could be frequent.
