The family intervention process: Confrontation or community?
Here is a short read that does a nice job summarizing the Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) approach and how it differs from more confrontational approaches.

It’s wonderful that CRAFT is getting more positive press and being promoted on popular blog sites!
