Filial therapy is an alternative method for treating emotionally disturbed children in which the parent is used as an ally in the therapeutic process.

Individual Therapy involves meeting with a therapist one-on-one for the purpose of reducing internal suffering which occurs in the form of problematic behaviors, beliefs, feelings, and somatic responses. In addition, ongoing therapy is a common and useful means of self-growth and self-actualization. It aims to increase the individual’s sense of his/her own well-being. Therapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change that are designed to improve the mental health of a client or patient, or to improve group or family relationships.
Marriage and Family Therapy
Marriage and Family Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves all the members of a nuclear or extended family. It may be conducted by a pair or team of therapists. In many cases the team consists of a man and a woman in order to treat gender-related issues or serve as role models for family members. Although some forms of family therapy are based on behavioral or psychodynamic principles, the most widespread form is based on family systems theory. This approach regards the family, as a whole, as the unit of treatment, and emphasizes such factors as relationships and communication patterns rather than traits or symptoms in individual members.
