Family Therapy

“Family therapists deal with family pain.” (Satir, 1983) It touches directly on the systems within the family .When one family member is not doing well, the rest feel the discomfort as well. The idea is to actually look into the family systems –everyone has an influence and the system reacts to every member of the family.

The ultimate goal of family therapy is to improve the interaction between all family members and enhance communication and coping skills.

Dr. Tienie follows a semi-structured approach with different techniques to actually elicit dynamics within the family system that could enhance insight and behaviour change.
