Family of origin work typically looks at the family you were born into and your parents' background. Therapy involves analyzing family messages, values, communication styles, traditions and ways of dealing with feelings. Family of origin work can help individuals to:

  • understand their origins and learn from the past, so that they will not perpetuate unhealthy patterns, either in themselves or in their own family;
  • understand the consequences of wrongs that were done to them;
  • break free from the past;
  • detect generational issues and deal with them;
  • detect and deal with the roots of bitterness/resentment;
  • deal with any unresolved guilt; and
  • improve extended family relationships. [1]
