This introductory workshop reviews the theory, research, and clinical strategies of attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). ABFT is a manualized, empirically supported family therapy designed to target family and individual processes associated with adolescent depression and suicide. Tested with diverse families, including low-income and minority families, ABFT is a trust-based, emotion- focused, process-oriented brief therapy. The model is organized by five treatment tasks that provide directionality. Participants will learn how this model helps families repair interpersonal ruptures that have damaged trust and rebuild emotionally protective, secure parent–child relationships.
Presenter: Dr. Suzanne Levy-Rudolph is a internationally renowned licensed clinical psychologist and training director of the ABFT Training Program at Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions.
