    Most couples have marital issues, and sometimes resolving these issues requires outside counseling from a family therapist or marriage counselor. Marriage counseling is designed to keep families together, avoid divorce, and improve the overall mental health of everyone involved. Family therapy can even bring children into sessions to help manage their care as well. Family therapists didn't start treating relationship psychology issues until around the 1950s. Before this time, psychologists and psychiatrists dealt mostly with individual therapy while friends, family, and church leaders gave advice regarding marital issues. Marriage therapy and counseling now helps couples realize that each individual has their own unique personality and helps them work out the conflicting emotions that arise from these personalities clashing. Therapists also aid spouses to understand and cope while their significant other goes through mental issues, like depression or anger. They can help work through the anxiety that may arise from past physical or emotional abuse from a spouse or parent and give advice to all individuals involved in a custody battle. Before choosing a specialist, look at their credentials and experience first. The right therapist should be licensed in their field as well as have expert training in the particular subject you are wishing to discuss. You may wish to see if the person you're looking into has ever been sued for malpractice, which is more common with psychiatrists that psychologists since the latter cannot prescribe medication. If children need to be involved in the counseling process, look for individuals with previous experience with the age group your child falls into.
