Functional Family Therapy (FFT) is an empirically grounded, well-documented, and highly successful family intervention for at-risk and juvenile justice involved youth. The FFT model is appealing because of its clear identification of specific phases that organize family changes in a coherent manner. Each phase in the FFT change process includes specific goals, assessment foci, specific techniques of intervention, and clinical skills necessary for success.
