New Horizons Child & Family

A Science Based Solution for Struggling Families

IIFT ( is an effective, family centered, home-based treatment model for high conflict families delivered by a team of expert clinicians. It provides state-of-the-art treatment for children and teens with serious mental health and behavioral challenges who have not responded well to traditional in-office (outpatient) therapies.  IIFT is also effective for stabilizing a child in his or her family home in order to avoid psychiatric hospitalization or residential care or, alternatively, as a step-down treatment after residential care, therapeutic boarding school, or wilderness program.

IIFT is not limited by geographic area and can be provided in any home throughout the United States and abroad. 

Dr. Paul Sunseri, the developer of IIFT, has extensive experience with children and teens with the most challenging behavioral issues.  He is the founder of three community mental health agencies (two of which were residential programs), a published researcher in peer reviewed journals, and a practicing clinical psychologist. Dr. Sunseri is the author of the largest research study to date on the relationship between family dynamics and children’s mental health (

Dr. Sunseri and his well-trained, highly experienced team of clinicians will provide your family with the services you need to better navigate the challenges you face as a parent and help your family reestablish a peaceful, loving connection.
