Has Your Family Lost Everything? Family Therapy Can Help
Jul 20, 2017
Losing everything in a bankruptcy is a problem that has occurred in far too many promising families. That's why it's crucial to get family therapy during this time. While it might seem like a cost you can't afford, it may just save your family and inspire them to get past this difficult period.
Bankruptcy Is Traumatic
When a family loses all of their money and ends up bankrupt, it can be a traumatic experience. Parents may blame themselves and their children struggle to understand their new life. Unfortunately, it can drag families apart as often as it pulls them together and forces them to work harder.
How Family Therapy Helps
Family therapy helps by bringing together families in a way that encourages healing and recovery. Basically, you and your children will sit down with each other and talk about the experience. Then, you'll learn how to adapt to it and move on from it in a constructive way.
For example, parents who blame themselves can be soothed by the loving and kind words of their children. And those children can also learn coping mechanisms for their emotional pain. For example, they can learn cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, as well as relaxation methods, that calm their mind.
Watching a family disintegrate after a bankruptcy is heartbreaking. That's why it is so crucial to get the help you need as soon as possible. Please contact us today if your family has gone through a difficult financial situation. We'll work with you to find a way to help your family recover.
