attachment based family treatment

ABFT is a model which originated in the USA for suicidal and depressed teens. It focuses on improving the relationship between the young person and their primary caregiver which has previously been affected by ‘attachment ruptures’. These are events that have occurred in the context of the relationship which have affected the young person’s ability to go to their caregiver to have their needs met. This requires an open dialogue, supported by the therapist to improve communication within therapy, with the goal of this being transferred outside of the therapy room.
