FST: Family Systems Trauma
Family Systems Trauma (FST) was created by Dr. Scott Sells who founded Family Trauma Institute. The model allows the therapist to work with the families, couples, and with individuals to improve the overall dynamic. The FST model looks at the unhealthy undercurrents being experienced, addresses the toxic seeds, and works to change things to become healthier as each item is addressed and worked on. This includes, at times, addressing diet, exercise, and other aspects to help treat the symptoms and get to the root of the overall problem.

The model is part of the PLL Model that requires that any model part of the PLL to be backed by evidence to verify it’s effectiveness. Learn more about FST here.
