Meet the Model Developer

I'm Dr. Scott Sells, Founder of the Family Trauma Institute.

Energized by working with family therapists across our country and internationally, my mission is to help mental health professionals become family trauma experts.

Through the Family Trauma Institute, I share FST | Family Systems Trauma tools and techniques from my latest book, Treating the Traumatized Child:  A Step-by-Step Family Systems Approach (Springer Publishing, 2017). 

I specialize in impossible or stuck cases whose families have not been successful with other counselors.  I share my step-by-step approach using real video case examples to engage participants actively in the process.
