Attachment Based-Family Therapy: a family safety net approach to suicide treatment

Join CAMS-care, LLC. for this hour-long webinar, “Attachment Based-Family Therapy: a family safety net approach to suicide treatment.” For adolescent and young adults, family conflict can drive a suicidal crisis and family support can buffer against it.  ABFT aims to identify and address the family events (e.g.  divorce) and processes (e.g. high demand, low warmth) that may exacerbate the distress and prohibit the family serving as a safety net.  Individual sessions with the patient and the parents prepare them for conversations that address attachment ruptures and disappointment.  Not only do these conjoint sessions resolve problems but server as in vivo change events where parents practice  new parenting skills and the young person practices new emotion regulation skills. This brief talk will  present the essential theory and elements of  this well researched empirically supported therapy.
