Prospective AF-CBT trainees must be mental health professionals with a Master's degree or higher. We ask that each trainee commit to implementing AF-CBT with at least 2 families during the course of the year.

AF-CBT should be conducted by individuals who have been formally trained in the model and who are familiar with the content, methods, assessments, and fidelity tools that are required to ensure effective administration of this approach.
