FFT is a dialectically built-in version (Sexton & Alexander, 2004, 2005; Sexton, 2009) that's even as clinically appropriate and evidence-based in a manner that speaks to a variety of practitioners and consumers. FFT has followed either a consumer concentration established in sound medical event (aligned with the practitioner’s idiographic predicament) whereas whilst getting to the learn, conception, and alter mechanisms (aligned with the researcher’s nomothetic concentration) underlying a number strong healing intervention. this present day FFT represents a number one instance of the way during which technological know-how, thought, and the knowledge of scientific perform should be utilized in clinically responsive methods, and transported to assorted contexts via systematic education, medical supervision, and implementation protocols (Alexander & Sexton, 2004; Sexton, Alexander & Robbins, 2000). one other factor that makes FFT particular is its seeming contradictions.

This relational “both … and” method has, i believe, allowed us to embody the dialectic stress inherent in kinfolk therapy—that is, the strain among scientific perform, foundational conception (systems, developmental psychopathology, epidemiology, the sociology of tradition, and so on.
