Conflict is a normal part of family life. Many issues can lead to conflict, such as unresolved hurts, inappropriately expressed anger, addictions to alcohol or drugs, the loss of a job, or frustrations related to school or marital problems. Good communication and the willingness to listen to each other while working to resolve conflict is an important component in strengthening the family bond.
Many times when families can talk through their challenges/conflicts with a skilled counselor, they may be able to find resolution to issues that have for some time been seemingly unresolvable. It takes courage to come together and ask for help. Often the result however, is wonderful and families are able to find new footing and the ability to move forward in a more healthy and appropriate way.
We all know that families can be a source of conflict, but families can also be the greatest source of love and support in life. Is conflict causing strife in your family? Why wait or waste more time feeling stuck? You have the power to do something about it. Often it is as simple as taking that first step by seeking help.
