Family conflict arises in every family. Households are rife with financial turmoil, differing opinions that turn into convictions, and inadequate communication. Mismanagement of emotions easily can turn into aggression, and firmly held beliefs make it difficult to come to negotiations.
Causes of family conflict are usually transitory in nature, periods of life alterations, such as birth or moving or divorce. Peaceful compromises are difficult to come upon, and arguments could be frequent. Family therapy seeks to correct or strengthen both verbal and nonverbal communication.
