Some therapists actively discourage inter-family communication until participants have successfully separated themselves from their more intense emotions. The therapist steers conversation towards the clientís unresolved family issues. For example, if a parent exhibits unreasonable anger at a childís behavior, it may be because the childís behavior has triggered emotions related to unresolved issues from the parentís own childhood. The family of origin might be oneís childhood family, oneís original family before divorce forced the formation of a blended family, or the extended family.
