Do you Need Family Financial Crisis Therapy

Currently, the United States is in the midst of one its most serious financial crises since the Great Depression in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s.  Practically every citizen of the country has been impacted in some way by the financial collapse of the housing and banking industries, and has seen their quality of life suffer as a result.

Nowhere has the impact been felt as much as in the American family.  Heads-of-household are losing their jobs and falling behind on their mortgage payments.  Many are seeing their dreams of retirement go up in smoke.

During these difficult times, individuals need a family counseling program that speaks to the specific issues of the day.  A family financial crisis therapy program can do just that – offering a safe environment where individuals can be truthful with one another, and work with a professional counselor to unearth solutions to their problem.

Signs you May Need Financial Crisis Therapy

  • You are ignoring your bills and financial responsibilities.  When some people fall behind on their bills, they crawl into a metaphorical “hole”, letting the notices stack up in an unrealistic belief that some magical financial windfall will make them all go away.
  • You are lying to your spouse about your financial situation.    In an effort to ease the burden on their family, many individuals who handle the household finances will keep the seriousness of the situation to themselves.  In addition to the stress this places on the head-of-household, it also violates the trust between partners – which can lead to problems that may require relationship counseling down the road.
  • You have considered suicide because of your situation.  Certainly the most serious of all potential symptoms of a personal financial crisis, having suicidal thoughts is sadly, also one of the most common.  Every year, thousands of people commit suicide as a result of their financial problems – never seeking professional help or opening up to those closest to them.


What Happens during Family Financial Crisis Therapy?


When a family enters into a financial crisis treatment program there are likely to be several things that need to be addressed immediately.   There is a good chance that there has been a violation of trust, or that one of the family members has exhibited signs of depression, anxiety or other mental health issues.  These topics are approached in a variety of ways, including:


  • The situation is discussed in detail.  The only way that therapist can help a family in crisis is if they have all the information.  That means an honest, open discussion of everything that has happened to this point.
  • Psychological health is improved.  If family members are experiencing stress, anxiety or depression as a result of their financial situation, the counselor will provide treatment for the condition – such as financial stress treatment - and help develop strategies to improve the state of that person’s mental health.
  • A plan is crafted.  A financial crisis therapy will work with the family to design an individualized plan for improving their situation and getting things moving in the right direction.
  • A better way of thinking.  Finally, financial crisis counselors will give the family the tools they need to react to every situation in their lives in a healthier, more productive manner.  The lessons taught during financial crisis therapy are actually designed to make the family stronger and more supportive of one another in the face of any crisis that comes along.
