What is family therapy?
Family therapy is its own distinct discipline of mental health. It was developed in the 1950s when several psychiatrists, working independently discovered that when they worked with schizophrenic patients in the hospital, they would get better. Then, they would send them home and they would deteriorate and be back in the hospital in a few months. The psychiatrists discovered that this pattern would repeat itself over and over. These psychiatrists realized that it wasn't enough to treat just the patient and not work with their environment.
