BSFT Counseling Staff to Participant-Family Ratios

One full-time counselor can provide the BSFT intervention to 15-20 families, depending on the experience and maturity of the counselor. If sessions are provided in the home, the number of families carried may be reduced to account for travel time to the home. Each family session runs for approximately 1 to 1½ hours.

BSFT strongly encourages a program structure that includes at least three counselors assigned to conduct the intervention - even if on a part time basis. This will allow counselors to support and consult with each about BSFT. Several counselors and the ability to videotape BSFT sessions will improve the effectiveness of the training and the outcome with the families.
