What is Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT)?
Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT) is a trust-based, emotion-focused psychotherapy model designed to improve family and individual processes associated with adolescent suicide and depression. Its goal is to repair interpersonal ruptures and rebuild an emotionally protective parent-child relationship.

Who Should Attend?
The ABFT Workshop is intended for administrators, counselors, couple and family therapists, mental health professionals, psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers. It is also open to graduate students.
