Code: BH/19/1315 The Brighton Functional Family Therapy Team Conference

For Therapists, Managers, Practitioners and Policy Makers

In June 2008 Brighton & Hove LA established the first UK based Functional Family Therapy Team.

In the following 11 years the Brighton team has supported the implementation and training of a further 15 FFT teams and 3 FFTCW teams. These teams have all been set up as a way of helping to reduce the numbers of children and young people becoming looked after, reducing offending/custody rates and improving outcomes for families as a whole.

FFT is an evidence based (Blue Prints certified) assertive outreach, systemic/behavioural model.

There are currently 300+ FFT(LLC) & FFTCW(LLC) sites in 10 countries worldwide serving in urban, rural and indigenous communities.

The focus of Functional Family Therapy is on helping young people and their families, by repairing family bonds, improving relationships and providing skills and strategies that support more successful family interactions and reduces risk.

The team invite you to come and share in a day of celebration, hear from other local authorities and providers about how FFT has enabled them to work with families and how using the models has impacted on the amount of young people needing to be looked after, CSE/CCE and reoffending & custody rates.
