Risk Reduction through Family Therapy

RRFT is an integrative approach to addressing the heterogeneous symptoms experienced by trauma-exposed adolescents. It targets a broad range of trauma-related psychopathology (e.g., PTSD, depression) and risk behaviors (substance use/abuse, risky sexual behavior, non-suicidal self injury). RRFT is individualized to the needs, strengths, developmental factors, and cultural background of each adolescent and family. This tailored approach is incorporated throughout all components of treatment.

Targeted Populations: 
13-18, both males and females; for adolescents and family; primary trauma type is childhood sexual abuse/sexual assault
