Family history is explored to establish patterns of experience or behavior and elucidate family rules or legacies. Otherwise, the therapy tends to focus on the here and now and is not concerned with what caused a problem, but with what seems to maintain it. Many family therapy interventions are designed to create the experience of different behavior for family members, who can then support one another's efforts to change.
