Functional Family Therapy (FFT)

Functional Family Therapy

Functional Family Therapy is a proven family therapy model for youth ages 10-18 and their family. FFT is a short-term program, usually lasting about 12 weeks in duration. FFT helps youth make better choices, helps families get along, and increases the amount of respect and support family members can offer each other. Families are seen with as many key family members as can participate, for the duration of the treatment. All of our Juvenile Probation-referred clients receive FFT, as well as some of our families referred through Family Youth & Children’s Prevention Services, Seneca Wraparound Family Therapy Services, and the Medi-Cal Children’s Counseling Collaborative.

FFT is part of the Sonoma County Human Services Department Upstream Investments portfolio. Learn more at
