Influenced by the science and theory behind interpersonal neurobiology, emotion-focused family therapy (EFFT) lays the groundwork for family health and healing. Through EFFT, family members and caregivers are encouraged to embrace their critical role in their loved one’s recovery from substance use habits, alongside any relevant mental health issues.
Parents and caregivers often experience difficulty in helping children adequately cope with the challenges that life sends their way. Emotion-focused family therapy helps provide a roadmap for anyone entrusted with the care of a child, especially a child approaching maturity through young adulthood. Specifically, EFFT offered through Real Recovery Clinical Services helps parents disengage symptoms and promote health-focused behaviors, assisting children and adolescents of all ages in processing emotions, damaging thought patterns and barriers to progress and recovery.
