What is AF-CBT

Alternatives for Families- A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT) is an intervention for families who are struggling with anger, conflict, and aggression.  It can also help families who are at risk or are worried about aggression and violence.  AF-CBT promotes use of positive coping and self-control skills, effective discipline strategies, and constructive family problem solving and communication.
