Getting out of the pit

When referred to Functional Family Therapy – Child Welfare (FFT -CW®), the Tupou* children were living with different family members as a result of the poor living conditions at home.

The FFT -CW® therapist worked with the mother to reduce her anxiety, blame and negativity. The family developed a relationship with their therapist that allowed them to see her as someone that would help them get out of the pit.

Finding safe and affordable housing become the family’s priority and the father was able to secure suitable accommodation for them at the start of the program.

Both parents are very grateful for the support they’ve received.
