How Escape Rooms Can Be An Ideal Family Therapy To Improve Communication

We all long for close, supportive relationships with our family members. But sometimes, life gets in the way, and communication breaks down. Don't you wish there were some magic escape room that could help you improve communication within your family?

Luckily, escape room games can serve as an ideal form of family therapy to help improve communication and problem-solving skills.

Can Escape Room Games Strengthen Family Relationships?

Yes! In fact, escape room games can be an excellent way to strengthen family relationships. A study in the journal Frontiers in Psychology found that escape rooms can help improve communication and problem-solving skills in a group setting.

In an escape room game, players are locked in a room and have to solve puzzles to escape. This requires players to work together and communicate effectively to escape the room.

While perfect family dynamics are hard to come by, an escape room can at least help families to understand and improve communication with each other. Escape rooms have been shown to be an effective form of group therapy. So, if you're looking for a way to improve communication within your family, an escape room game might be the perfect solution.

Escape Room Games Encourage Rational Thinking

envy-happy-players-400x400-1

It is a common practice in families to avoid talking about difficult topics. We fear such conversations will only lead to arguments and further conflict. However, escape room games can help encourage rational thinking and open communication about difficult topics.

In an escape room, players face challenging tasks requiring quick thinking and clear communication. This can help players to see that it is possible to discuss difficult topics without leading to arguments or conflict. As such, escape room games can help break down family communication barriers.

For instance, your spouse may be hesitant to try something new, but in an escape room, they would need to be open to new ideas to escape the room. This can help to improve communication and problem-solving skills in a relationship.

They Foster Teamwork and Cooperation

It is a common occurrence in families for members to compete with each other instead of working together. This can lead to conflict and resentment. Families also tend to have different communication styles, which can further contribute to conflict.

In an escape room, players are forced to work together as a team to escape the room. This can help players to learn to cooperate and communicate effectively.

This is an important skill for families to learn, as it can help to reduce conflict and improve relationships.

For instance, if you have a spouse that is always trying to take control, escape room games can help them to see the importance of teamwork and cooperation.

Escape Rooms Encourage Creative Thinking

Feeling stuck at an escape room

Families often get stuck in a rut, doing the same things day in and day out. This can lead to boredom and conflict.

In an escape room, players are required to think outside the box to escape the room. This can help players to see that there are other ways to do things and that it is possible to break out of the ordinary.

For instance, if you have a family member that is always resistant to change, escape room games can help them to see that change is possible. This can help to improve communication and problem-solving skills in a relationship.

The Game Will Help Improve Communication Skills

It is no secret that communication is a key ingredient for strong family relationships. However, communicating can often be easier said than done.

In an escape room, players are required to communicate with each other to escape the room. This can help players to learn to communicate effectively with each other.

For instance, if you have a family member that is always reluctant to communicate, escape room games can help them to see the importance of communication. This can help to improve communication and problem-solving skills in a relationship.

An escape room game can help to improve communication and problem-solving skills within a family. If you are looking for a way to improve family dynamics, escape room games might be the perfect solution.

How To Choose The Right Escape Room For Your Family

Playing Lost Mummy escape room game at home with Laura's family

Consider the age of your family members. You want to choose an escape room that is appropriate for the ages of your family members. For example, if you have young children, you might want to choose an escape room that is designed for families with young children. Or if you have teenagers, you might want to choose an escape room with a more challenging difficulty level.

Choose the difficulty level based on the skills of your family members. You want to choose an escape room that is challenging but not too challenging. If you have a family member that is an escape room pro, you might want to choose a room with a higher difficulty level. On the other hand, if you have a family member that is new to escape rooms, you might want to choose a room with a lower difficulty level.

Consider the interests of your family members. You want to choose an interesting escape room for all of your family members. For example, if you have a family member that loves puzzles, you might want to choose an escape room with a lot of puzzles.

At Lock Paper & Scissors, we have escape rooms for all types of families. We have escape rooms that are designed for families with young children, escape rooms with a more challenging difficulty level, and escape rooms with a variety of different puzzles.
