Like most mind-body work, family therapy celebrates our creativity, ingenuity, language, plans, memories and dreams. Both traditions take the position that health depends both on challenging our imaginations, and getting back to nature. The body depends on inventiveness to survive and thrive, and the mind depends upon the body to stay in check.
But at the core, the mind belongs to the body’s ecology, and not the other way around.
What does this have to do with family therapy? Family therapists perceive the family itself as a social body, and the individual as an extension of that living system. As social creatures, we are wired to relate, to collaborate, to fight, and even to destroy, like cells in the human body, for the greater good of the larger system–which, in turn, protects its members.
