An explanation and discussion of the underlying theories behind AF-CBT is found in the book "Assessing and Treating Child Physical Abuse in Children and their Families: A Cognitive-Behavioral Approach" (Kolko & Swenson, 2002), which is available from Sage Publications or Amazon.com.

It includes chapters offering descriptions, technical discussions, illustrations, comments, and implementation caveats regarding a set of cognitive, affective, and behavioral techniques for use with children, parents, and families. The book focuses on understanding key treatment priorities based on initial assessment findings/impressions and then modifying the role of coercion, conflict, and aggression/violence.

What Is AF-CBT?

Alternatives for Families: a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (AF-CBT) is a trauma-informed, evidence-based treatment (EBT) designed to improve the relationship between children and caregivers in families involved in arguments, frequent conflict, physical force/discipline, child physical abuse, or child behavior problems.
