ABFT-Certified Therapists and Therapists in Training

The ABFT Therapist Directory is a list of therapists who have participated in ABFT training with the ABFT Training Program.

The list is divided into two categories:

  • “Certified Therapists" have successfully completed all of the requirements of our ABFT Therapist Certification training. This means that these therapists have demonstrated adherence and competence in using ABFT with clients at the time of certification.
  • “ABFT Trained, not Certified” therapists have attended, at a minimum, our 3-day Introductory workshop and are currently or have in the past participated in ABFT supervision with a Certified ABFT Supervisor.

Listing is voluntary and does not include all persons who have been through ABFT trainings with the ABFT Training Program.

The ABFT Therapist Directory is a resource, not an endorsement, of providers. The ABFT Training Program does not make specific referrals. Always inquire into the credentials of any practitioner before choosing a therapist.

Therapists who have completed the 3-day Introductory ABFT workshop and participated in supervision through the ABFT Training Program or have been certified as an ABFT therapist, and wish to be listed in our directory, can request to be added to the directory.
