Functional Family Therapy
Functional Family Therapy (FFT) is a program helping youth and families overcome challenging behaviors and preventing out-of-home placements. We believe all families want the best for themselves, and we offer support and structure that help families work better together and practice new skills that can lead to enduring change.
FFT is built on a foundation of acceptance and respect. It utilizes assessment and intervention to address risk and protective factors within and outside of the family that impact the development of youth. By collaborating to create balanced alliances, the family and FFT clinician reduce blame and negativity and instill hope.
