One of the realities of this life is that even when you love someone unconditionally, it is very possible to experience periods where you cannot get along with them. Families often go through tough times and may even experience situations where some household members just don’t desire each other’s presence. And for families that grew up on love, this can be very troubling.
It is important for families to learn to come to terms with various problems and move past certain issues. However, when this becomes difficult to do, it only makes sense that the family reaches out to a therapist. Working with a licensed therapist would help determine the causes of the conflicts within your family, and from there, some working solutions will be developed.
Solution-focused family therapy — one of the most popular forms of family therapy — is very helpful when it comes to getting you the results that you want for your family. With this, your family will work toward a common goal in order to be a happy family unit again. This type of therapy is going to involve every family member committing to the process.

What is solution-focused family therapy?
Sometimes referred to as solution-focused brief therapy, it involves the use of questions and exploration to determine what the ideal solutions for each problem are going to be.
During the initial therapy session, you should honestly present the problems that your family is dealing with. There may be several issues, and each member of the family may have a different perspective on what they are and why they exist. The therapist will work to help each member of the family discuss the issues as they see them, and to get an understanding of the role each member of the family plays.
Your therapist may ask you what you think could or should be done to solve the present problems and allow each member of the family to answer this question. This process may take some time, but it will give the therapist great insight into what is going on within the family.
Solution-focused family therapy involves common sense and practical solutions. Sometimes, the solutions may be as simple as changing behaviors that are identified as problematic. The therapist may ask questions about whether or not these issues have happened before. They will then ask what was done in the past to solve these issues.
