Family Dynamics

Family dynamics are the ways we relate to each other within a family unit. We all have patterns of behavior—whether positive, negative, or neutral—with our parents, siblings, children, and other extended family members. While each family’s dynamics are different, evidence of healthy family dynamics occurs when all members receive and offer various types of support to each other, leaving everyone feeling safe and secure in their relationships. Healthy family dynamics are fluid and adaptable as each member’s role, responsibilities, and capabilities shift over time. Unhealthy dynamics result in enmeshed, codependent, or abusive relationships, where some members are left with unmet needs or harmful coping strategies. Examining our own family's dynamics can help us create stronger, safer relationships for everyone we care about. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
