What is Functional Family Therapy Therapeutic Case Management (FFT-TCM)?

  • An evidence-based treatment model for youth, from birth through age 18, and their families who are struggling with behavioral problems and family conflict.

  • Structured intervention consisting of three distinct phases:

    • Phase One: building relationships with the family and identifying immediate case management needs

    • Phase Two: teaching, supporting, and coaching families on skills designed to increase family functioning and ability to meet practical needs

    • Phase Three: transitioning the family towards independence with both family skills and practical needs to increase confidence of success after discharge

Happy Family
