The theory behind CFT is that regardless of whether a problem appears to be within an individual or within a family, getting other family members involved in the therapeutic process will result in more effective solutions. Couples and Family Therapy are goal-oriented and work toward an established end result. In recent years, CFT practitioners and groups have called for expanded approaches to traditional CFT training that incorporate more “real world” practices to integrate other therapies and become more inclusive of non-heterosexual couples and families.
