Family therapy is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families on fostering strengths in family relationships and changing maladaptive communication patterns. The therapy views the family system as the unit of change rather than the individual. The family therapist facilitates interactions in a way that emphasizes the abilities, wisdom, and support of the wider system.
Couples therapy involves counseling the parties in a relationship in an effort to identify patterns of distress, manage differences, and improve communication. Short-term couples therapy may be between 1 to 3 sessions where as long-term couples therapy may run from 12 to 24 sessions.
