Family Dynamics

Families and their patterns are familiar and universal, yet they tend to go about without our conscious awareness. It is very difficult to change an assigned family roles, even for grown up children.

Family dynamics are patterns of interactions between family members that influence family structure, hierarchy, roles, values, and behaviors. Family dynamics have a strong impact on the way children see themselves, others, and the world. Moving to a new country can dramatically change a family's dynamics.

How can we change our assigned family roles? It needs time and mutual respect and acceptance within the family, in order to change. These changes can however be uplifting and disrupt a wishes circle. Family therapy can be a useful way to get a mutual third party moderating a family’s discussions.
