A research history spanning over 40 years has consistently shown Filial Therapy to be a cost-effective method for facilitating positive, lasting child/family change. The use of this relatively short-term and empirically-based approach has increased dramatically in recent years due to its empowering, effective approach to strengthening families. Used in a variety of settings, Filial Therapy has been embraced by many different ethnic and cultural groups throughout the world because of its respectful involvement of parents as partners in the family change process.
