Recognizing the Need for Help to Resolve Family Conflict
Problems may surface even in the healthiest of families, challenging the foundation on which the structure is built. When the unique individuals that compose a family express a range of thoughts and opinions on anything, it is not surprising for disagreements to occur. The clashing viewpoints can help each member to learn and grow, but they can also result in a full-blown conflict in which nobody wins.
The Distressing Effects of Family Conflicts
Your family is supposed to be the source of love, strength, and concern, an institution that provides comfort and safety. In reality, not all families fulfill this expectation. Instead, there are some that breed stress, anger, misunderstanding, and unmet needs. From minor irritations to deep resentments, from petty arguments to unresolved conflicts and all those feelings that you’re not even aware of -these can bring up the most intense emotions with lasting effect that can be extremely stressful, sometimes even destructive.
While a certain amount of conflict is healthier than with no conflict at all, the tension within the family can exact a toll on the members’ physical, emotional, psychological and behavioral health. Common family problems are identified as divorce, financial difficulties, chronic illness, grief and substance abuse. Whatever the source, the family dynamics are greatly affected and the functioning of the members is significantly impacted. The evidence of repeated and unresolved family conflicts may manifest as depression, mood swings, and dramatic behavioral shifts in children and teens.
Opening the Door to Welcome Help
Conflict is a natural progression in any relationship, including the family. But, when the degree and intensity of disagreements and fighting are affecting the daily activities and happiness of members, outside intervention may be necessary. Resolving family issues is supposed to be an internal matter between members. However, it can be difficult and challenging considering the number of personalities required to cooperate in the process.
The best option is to consider counseling, which can serve as the neutral ground for each member to be heard. With counseling, there is a neutral voice that offers opinions from another perspective. In particular, family counseling provides the necessary tools to resolve family conflicts without causing pain to anyone.
