Family Therapy Clinics

The Brief Therapy Institute (BTI) focuses on the client's strengths and resources. The goal is to work with clients to assist them in discovering creative solutions to their unique problems. Therapists are trained to work with families and individuals of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations. Most clients are able to turn things around in 5 to 10 sessions.

Medical Family Therapy

Medical Family Therapy is a collaboration between the Department of Family Therapy and NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) to provide brief, therapeutic interventions for patients facing medical challenges. This is a supplemental service provided to patients who are referred by their NSU physicians in the Ziff Medical Clinic.

Family Therapy Webinar Series

These webinars cover a variety of topics, including "Solution Focused Brief Therapy 101" and "Hope-Focused Solutions." Participants can receive continuing education credits as part of their professional development.
