Introductory day: 22nd May

Intensive course 22-24th May

Following the success of the first UK based training in ABFT provided by its developers at the University of Exeter, we are pleased to announce that we will be facilitating a second training event.

Participants can attend either the first introductory day or the full three day training. ABFT for adolescent depression is the only manualised, empirically supported family therapy model designed to target family and individual processes associated with adolescent suicide and depression. It is a trust-based, emotion focused psychotherapy model that aims to repair interpersonal ruptures and rebuild emotionally protective, secure-based parent-child relationships.


The treatment is characterised by:

• Reframing the therapy to focus on interpersonal development

• Building alliances with adolescent and parents

• Facilitating conversations to resolve attachment ruptures

• Promoting adolescent autonomy and competency
