Dysfunctional Family

Dysfunctional Family

A dysfunctional family is one in which the relationships within the family are characterized by patterns of conflict, miscommunication, and lack of healthy boundaries. Being raised in a dysfunctional family can have a significant impact on a person's mental and emotional well-being and can affect their relationships and interactions with others. If you are struggling with a dysfunctional family, know that you are not alone, and that help is available.


  • Do you feel like your family members don't understand or support you?

  • Do you feel like your family members are constantly in conflict with each other?

  • Do you feel like you have to take on a caretaker role within your family?

  • Do you feel like you can't rely on your family for emotional support?

  • Do you feel like your family members have unrealistic expectations of you?


  • A dysfunctional family can be caused by a variety of factors, including unresolved past traumas, lack of effective communication skills, and addiction or mental illness.

  • It can also be caused by a lack of healthy boundaries within the family.


  • The most effective treatment for a dysfunctional family is therapy.

  • Therapy can help you to understand the dynamics of the family and to develop healthy coping skills to manage your symptoms.

  • It can also help you to set boundaries with family members and to communicate more effectively.

  • Building a support system with friends and family who are not dysfunctional can also be helpful.
