Based on decades of method development and outcome research, FFT has consistently proven to be an effective intervention with the target population. In 12-14 sessions, it is typical for families to experience improved communication, an increase in youth prosocial behaviors, and progress toward probationary goals (when applicable).
During the beginning phase of treatment, there is a focus on building relationships, increasing hope, and decreasing negativity and blame within the family system. Clinicians honor the family's integrity and uniqueness through collaboratively-developed interventions tailored to meet clients’ specific goals.
FFT is designed with sustainability in mind; the third and final treatment phase (generalization) is specifically dedicated to preparing the family for maintaining positive change after they complete FFT. In addition to building on family members’ own strengths and insights, clinicians can connect families with external resources in the community.
