Counseling psychology was my doctoral minor. I had to do actual counseling and it was video taped to others could watch and comment on what was going on. I had a family that I was forced to do family counseling with in a traditional family counseling style. What the counselor does is gets the family talking about anything waiting for the family to fall apart. For a fight to start. It may take weeks and cost thousands. After weeks nothing happened. The parents were very confused and upset. My professor thought what we were doing was perfect. So my message is family counseling can be long, it may seem like nothing gets done, and it may cost a lot.
I recommend starting with the books How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Sibling Rivalry.
