Discipline summary

Family Therapy, also known as Family and Couples Therapy, is a sub-discipline of psychotherapy which views the family unit as a system. As such, family therapy research deals with revealing the different ways in which different family systems function, and developing therapeutic tools which are system-informed. As a therapeutic approach, it develops ways of implementation of system-tools in practice, i.e. mental healthcare, general practice and community.
