Family therapy requires a prolonged introductory and diagnostic period due to the number of people involved in the process. The therapist generally meets with all or most of the family members, with occasional pairings selected to attend sessions without the others. Family therapy seeks to develop an understanding of the family's dynamics and the ways in which they communicate. Family therapy seeks to align family expectations, identify maladaptive behavioral patterns and promote an understanding of the family's general means of communicating. Common goals of family therapy include creating increased opportunities for positive and productive family interactions and assisting families in understanding the developmental needs of each of the individual family members. Family therapy is a common compliment to individual work with children or adolescents.
