Association for Family Therapy - AFT

Association for Family Therapy

At AFT we know there's much to celebrate about family life in the UK. We also know that family life can be tough sometimes. Families can feel the strain when a child or adult experiences serious difficulties or when there are differences between family members. Close relationships sometimes fuel problems. Sometimes they break down under the strain. Yet they can also be key to helping people negotiate and recover from difficulties and make important changes in their lives.

AFT's members include Family and Systemic Psychotherapists (also known as family therapists) and other professionals working with families and family members experiencing difficulties. They work in many different settings in public and independent services, enabling family members to understand each other's experiences and views, express and explore their thoughts and emotions, appreciate each other's needs, build on family strengths and make useful changes.

Family-focused work is proving helpful for children, young people and adults experiencing an extraordinarily wide range of difficulties and circumstances, including:

  • Family communication problems
  • Couple relationship difficulties
  • Child and adolescent behaviour difficulties
  • Child, adult and older adult mental health problems
  • Domestic violence
  • Illness and disability in the family
  • Separation, divorce and step-family life
  • Anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders
  • Fostering, adoption and the needs of 'looked after' children
  • Self-harm
  • Drug and alcohol misuse
  • The effects of trauma
  • Difficulties related to aging... and much more
