Functional Family Therapy (FFT) is a family intervention targeting young people (aged 11-18) at risk for and/or presenting with delinquency. FFT assesses family behaviours that maintain delinquent behaviour, modifies dysfunctional family communication, trains family members to negotiate effectively and sets clear rules about privileges and responsibilities. Families receive 30 hours of therapy over the course of 3 months.
