Alternatives for Families:  Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT)

3-Day Clinician Training Workshop with Year-Long Case Consultation

Join us for an intensive training and year-long clinical collaboration utilizing Alternatives for Families: A Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT).  AF-CBT is an evidence-based, family-centered treatment designed to address family conflict, coercion and hostility, emotional abuse, and child physical abuse.  AF-CBT teaches individual and family skills to strengthen family relationships and safety routines using coordinated and structured training methods.

This training is specifically designed for mental health practitioners currently providing treatment with families (caregivers and children) who are at risk for high conflict, coercion and/or physical discipline.  In order to best implement AF-CBT, it is recommended that supervisors and agency administrators consider attending in order to support the use of AF-CBT in their organization.
