Functional Famiy Therapy

What is FFT? 

Functional Family Therapy is an evidence- and strength-based prevention program built on a foundation of acceptance and respect. At its core is a focus on assessment and intervention to address risk and protective factors within and outside of the family that impact the adolescent and his or her adaptive development.


FFT consists of five major components: engagement, motivation, relational assessment, behavior change and generalization. 
FFT works primarily with 11- to 18-year-old youth who have been referred for behavioral or emotional problems by the juvenile justice, mental health, school or child welfare systems.
