Brief Strategic Family Therapy
It is inside the home where a child starts to develop his qualities — be they good or bad. It is also said that one’s surroundings greatly affects the person’s character, wellbeing, and future. In this case, providing a good environment for your family is always the best way to help them become better individuals.
Though people live in the same group, in the same family, and under the same roof, there will always be issues that will transpire between siblings, and between parents and children. These include:
- Parent’s employment or business status
- Ongoing legal battles
The truth is that there is no family on the face of the planet that doesn’t face challenges. No matter how good you think your family is, there are always drawbacks that rock the relationship. Fortunately, family stresses are normal, and if family members are mature enough to face their problems, these drawbacks can turned into healthy and beneficial factors that strengthen the bond of the family.
And if you think that therapy is only for families experiencing problems, you may be mistake. It’s for everyone. This is where Brief Strategic Family Therapy Training (BSFTT) comes into the scene.
What is Brief Strategic Family Therapy?
Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT) is a scientifically designed program that focuses on regaining family relationship, reducing tension and problems in the home, and strengthens families. It is a systematic solution providing practical ways to treat the issues mentioned above. This method of restructuring family relationships is highly recommended by SAMHSA, OJJDP, and CSAP.
How it Works
BSFT is an interactional approach so that family members can easily communicate with each other effectively and address their concerns. His House works with the whole family to identify their problems and evaluate how each issue will be resolved. We aim to build techniques that are specially designed for our clients’ situations; to target both the youth and adult’s challenges; to clear issues, and to rebuild relationships.
The efficacy of this therapy entirely depends on the ability and willingness of each member to join the program and proactively engage in the sessions.
It is usually conducted within 8 to 17 weeks depending on the gravity of the problem.
There are four steps to complete the BSFT program. These include:
- Implementing the plans.
All of these four steps will be an ongoing process; after successful BSFT treatment, the family can stand on its own and look forward positively to a new and bright future.
