Training Information

Functional Family Therapy is one of the few therapeutic models successful with a wide range of problem youth and their families in child welfare, mental health and juvenile justice.  As a treatment program, FFT is successful with a wide range of problem youth and their families in various contexts. As a prevention program, FFT is effective in diverting the trajectory of at-risk adolescents away from entering the mental health and justice systems (Sexton, 2010; Sexton & Alexander,2003; Alexander, et al, 2000; Sexton & Turner, 2010).
