    Alternatives for Families: A Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT) is a trauma-informed, evidence-based intervention designed to improve the relationship between children and their caregivers by addressing individual and family problems relating to: 
         • Family conflicts   
         • Behavior problems, including physical aggression
         • Anger and verbal aggression, including emotional abuse
         • Harsh physical discipline, physical aggression, or child physical abuse, or
         • Child trauma-related symptoms secondary to any of the above

    These patterns may be shown by an individual caregiver or a child/adolescent, and/or by the family.   Therefore, AF-CBT targets the caregiver, child/adolescent, and the larger family context. 

    AF-CBT involves three phases of treatment:
         1) Engagement and Psychoeducation, 2) Individual skills building, 3) Family applications.

    Who is Appropriate for AF-CBT?
    AF-CBT is appropriate for a broad range of families. The following general criteria have been developed to facilitate the identification of families who may benefit from this intervention.

    BACKGROUND CRITERIA
         • A child, age 5-17, can participate now or soon
         • A caregiver (e.g., biological, adoptive, foster, or kin) can participate now or soon
         • Both caregiver and child have an adequate capacity or repertoire to learn/benefit from AF-CBT
    CLINICAL CRITERIA
         • The Family has frequent conflict(s) and/or arguments OR
         • A Caregiver shows anger (hostility), uses physical force/discipline (coercion), and/or has allegation/history of child physical abuse OR
         • A Child shows anger, has behavior problems (e.g., defiance, aggression, explosiveness), has trauma symptoms/PTSD after physical discipline/abuse, and/or has prior exposure to harsh discipline/physical abuse
    A case is eligible if ALL 3 Background Criteria and 1 Clinical Criterion are met.

    Objectives:

    1. Describe the intervention model and its content to families in a manner that engages and motivates treatment participation.

    2. Implement specific techniques to decrease parent and child aggression, family conflict, and child PTSD symptoms related to physical violence (e.g., complete no-force agree-ment, safety planning, imaginal exposure).

    3. Initiate discussions about abusive/aggressive experiences with children and caregivers and follow up with social skills training, social support planning, positive family commu-nication, problem-solving routines, and child behavior management training.

    Providers
    Prospective AF-CBT trainees must be mental health professionals with a Master's degree or higher. Trainees are asked to commit to implementing AF-CBT with at least 2 families during the course of the training year so they should have an active caseload ready to apply the model.
