About AF-CBT


For a complete overview of AF-CBT (background, research, training options, etc.), please see our overview.

Alternatives for Families: A Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT) is a trauma-informed, evidence-based intervention designed to improve the relationship between children and their caregivers by addressing individual and family problems relating to: 

  • Family conflicts   
  • Behavior problems, including physical aggression
  • Anger and verbal aggression, including emotional abuse
  • Harsh physical discipline, physical aggression, or child physical abuse, or
  • Child trauma-related symptoms secondary to any of the above

These patterns may be shown by an individual caregiver or a child/adolescent, and/or by the family.   Therefore, AF-CBT targets the caregiver, child/adolescent, and the larger family context. 

AF-CBT training requires a MS/MA degree or higher.
