The Methodology of Family Therapy
A famous author once claimed that "every story is an act of censorship." He meant that the telling of a story involves purposeful exclusions and inclusions of facts and fiction. The job of a good therapist is to combine stories in an effort to lift the censorship and get to the heart of the matter.
Family Therapy is a child of the larger field of Psychology, applying decades of theory and experimentation. As Family Therapy has grown into a field of its own, family therapists are afforded a wealth of tactics they may employ in their efforts to help families through censorship to the truth of their situation.
