Family-Based Treatment (FBT) is a new approach to speech-language pathology that differs significantly from the traditional model of therapy. FBT was formulated by Dr. James Andrews and Mary Andrews at Northern Illinois University. This new approach was introduced at the Scotland First 'XIX Congress of the International Association of Logopaedics and Phoniatrics in August of 1983. In 1984 FBT was presented to the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Then in 1986 the new approach was printed in the publication of Seminars in Speech and Language. James Andrews, Ph.D., is currently a professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders and Director of Clinical Services at the Speech and Hearing Clinic at Northern Illinois University. Mary Andrews, M.S., is an instructor in the Department of Communicative Disorders at Northern Illinois University as well as a couple and family therapist at Kairos Family Center in Elgin, Illinois.
