About the Program: 

Functional Family Therapy through Child Welfare (FFT-CW) is an adaptation of Functional Family Therapy (FFT) which provides services to children, youth and families in child welfare settings. Functional Family Therapy through Child Welfare (FFT-CW) aims to keep families together and where possible prevent children from entering out of home care. Services in FFT-CW are based on the standard FFT model.

FFT-CW is a short term, assertive outreach, evidence based intervention program with an average of 12 to 20 sessions over three to five months. FFT-CW is a strengths-based model built on a foundation of acceptance and respect. The program has supported many adolescents and their families in various multi-ethnic and Indigenous cultural contexts globally.

Evidence based services are internationally recognised as having the highest level of research validating the beneficial outcomes for clients. They are characterised by a clearly articulated theory, comprehensive employee training manuals, model adherence measures and on-going quality assurance systems.
