You may be asking, “Isn’t parenting therapy just another form of marital or family therapy?” Yes and no.
Yes, the marriage benefits from improvements in parenting
and yes, the family is strengthened when parenting is enhanced BUT Parenting Therapy is different than marital therapy and family therapy in that its primary focus is on parenting. Some parents aren’t still married. Some parents get along in every other way, except for parenting. Some families don’t need full blown family therapy if some things are just changed a bit in the parenting approach. Each 50 minute session establishes common ground, fosters understanding and gives practical skills to parents to use the minute they walk through their door.
