Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) is a type of behavioral intervention that introduces the client’s Concerned Significant Other (CSO) into therapy. A CSO can be a loved one that is concerned about the client’s using behavior. It is intended to provide an alternative to nagging, pleading, or threatening them into treatment. It teaches the CSO how to use behavioral tools to encourage the client to seek treatment.
