Conjoint Family Counseling is an experience in which an outsider, the counselor, is invited into a group of individuals related to each other for the sake of stimulating healthy relationships. Often the group or family invites the counselor into the system because of their painful concern about one member they identify as the focus of the problem. The challenge presented to the counselor is to use his eyes, ears, and sensibilities to give new insights or added reaffirmation to the family’s view of itself. Even though the family’s goal is the solution of their problems, the therapeutic hope of the counselor is that the family will discover a process for growth, namely, the nurturance of the self-worth of the individual members.
