IFFT is a highly effective model of family treatment for serious childhood mental health issues such as self-harm, suicidal thoughts, oppositional defiant disorder, depression, anxiety, substance use, and so on in which weekly outpatient therapy alone hasn't been effective.
IFFT is soundly grounded in science-based clinical interventions. For a deep-dive into IFFT and what it entails, along with an actual case study, please see our article published in the peer reviewed American Journal of Family Therspy (Note IFFT was previously called IIFT in this article.)
Research has shown that one of the most effective ways to treat childhood mental illness is through effective family-based therapy. Intensive Family-Focused Therapy (IFFT) provides you and your child with a specialized team of expert therapists that can resolve even the most challenging emotional and behavioral needs of children and adolescents.
Each IFFT therapist is fully licensed and highly experienced. We work with children and adolescents with complex clinical needs. The therapists working with your family have the necessary expertise to effectively treat serious mental health challenges.
