Signs That You Need Family Counseling
Deciding whether or not you need family counseling is a big decision. While others see it is as a weakness or a failure, it is nothing to be ashamed of; if anything, it is something that you should think of positively. You are doing everything you can to make sure that your family stays together and that you are all happy.
So, when do you know that you need family counseling? Here are some signs that you should take note of:
Loss of communication. Do you find it hard to communicate and open up with each other? Are you starting to drift away from your family members? Do you give each other the “silent treatment” a lot more?
Substance abuse problems. Does anyone in your family have a substance abuse (drugs and/or alcohol) problem?
Difficulty coping with loss. Has there been a recent death in the family? Are the parents going through a separation or a divorce? Is the family having trouble dealing with these losses?
Children have a significant change of behavior in school and/or at home. Are your children’s grades starting to drop? Are they being disruptive at school? Do they have attendance problems? Are they starting to rebel at home?
Withdrawal. Do you notice some of your family members withdrawing from family events, dinners, and other family occasions?
Excessive emotional outburst and reactions. Do any of your family members exhibit extreme emotional outbursts and reactions? (E.g. excessive anger, irritability, sadness, etc.)
