FFT-CW progresses through distinct phases to accomplish specific goals: Engagement/Motivation – includes a robust family assessment and changing the meaning of those relational patterns which have contributed toward a history of risk and harm Behaviour Change – teaching new relationship skills tailored to the referral needs of each family and using the unique strengths and protective factors of the family system Generalisation – applying the skills learnt to new and different contexts, developing relapse prevention plans, and connecting with other services/resources to support the ongoing progress.
