Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT), an empirically supported treatment/supervision/training model developed by Marion Lindblad-Goldberg in the late 1970’s. We are the only COAMFTE-Accredited post-graduate program that provides ESFT training.
The Philadelphia Child and Family Therapy Training Center promotes effective, strength-based, systemic behavioral health services through training, supervision, consulting, and competency development. The Center embraces innovation, ethical practice, and the use of data to inform training and competency development programs. Our mission is to collaborate with systemic behavioral health clinicians and organizations to build on and support the healthy development and relational functioning of children and families with an appreciation of socio-political contexts and its impact on children and families.
“Just wanted to thank you all for the training! Although I have been a therapist for about 10 years now, I never hesitate to take the opportunity to go back to the basics. I especially appreciated the focus of the training today. The idea of being a systemically focused therapist but feeling isolated in that thinking is a very real thing at times.
I also wanted to let you know, I spent most of the 3rd training day thinking about a particular family I am working with and how I might apply the information in my relationship with them. I am happy to say that doing so has helped tremendously and I feel as though it has helped us progress together. Thanks for helping me refocus and for continuing to reaffirm the work I am doing. It is greatly appreciated. Take care! ”
