Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT): a new and innovative treatment model for the caregivers of individuals struggling with:
•    Anxiety
•    Depression
•    Eating disorders
•    Substance use, etc.
Different from many of the mainstream treatment models, EFFT is rooted in the deep belief in the healing power of families across the lifespan.

EFFT is a very powerful mode of therapy – parents and caregivers are taught practical skills and techniques that can be used to support their loved one’s recovery regardless of his or her age and/or motivation for change. Parents and caregivers are also supported to work through their own fears and emotional reactions that will no doubt arise throughout the challenging road toward recovery and wellness.
