Therapies all operate in different ways, but they do have a few similarities. One thing to keep in mind is that the first meeting typically requires the whole family to be together, and not divided up. A therapist’s main goal during the family counseling session is to try and create a healthy environment, so everyone feels comfortable being vulnerable and sharing their thoughts. These thoughts can be positive or negative, but the point is to get the family conversating and sharing their emotions.
