Separated family therapy (SFT)

Separated family therapy: In SFT, the adolescent is seen on his or her own and the parents are seen in a separate session by the same therapist.This differs from conjoint family therapy (CFT) where the patient and family are seen together. Both are effective, but the separate parallel sessions in SFT is favored in cases where there is a high degree of hostility or parental criticism.
