That was a great interview Aussie.
Do you have any ideas re when we may expect clinicians to offer this program in Australia?
Many thanks😊
Dear Coffeetime,

In Queensland and Victoria right after they have been trained in February 2019 at the EDFA TBT-S training events. Here is the TBT-S event website http://www.edfaevents.com

We were lucky enough to have had Stephanie as a T in our Multi-Family Intensive week at UCSD 7 years ago, and additionally lucky to have had Ivan Eisler as a 'guest' facilitator during his sabbatical time at UCSD.  

The program offered our family such a turn-around from where we'd been.  The power of good evidence-based treatment, even after 3 years of ineffective treatment, was striking.  And all the great things discussed in this video, including the empowerment of parents learning from one another, were so helpful.
