Building Connections - Strengthening Communities
Here at Midlands Psychology we understand the importance of our connections to each other, our families, our neighbourhoods and communities. We are committed to a culture of working with others to create opportunities for growth and development. This is why we put the family at the centre of everything we do.
Why Families Matter
Everyone's family is unique. We use the term 'family' to refer to the so-called family 'unit' - whatever that may be. It describes the person or people you live with and the strong bonds of love, support and mutual dependency you have with them.
For the developing child, the family is the single most important influence in his or her life. Therefore, it is vitally important to nurture and support family relationships, not just for growth and development but also for emotional health and well-being. Ultimately, we know that this 'grounding' of positive family relationships helps not only the individual but the whole society in which we live. Whenever we help build the resources of a family, we are helping each and every family member to be stronger and happier and to be able to improve their quality of life into the future. This is why psychologists often say that it is the family that is 'the unit of change'.
