What are the Essential Components of BSFT?

Successful implementation of BSFT® requires:
  • Counselors certified in Brief Strategic Family Therapy who can intervene in families to improve maladaptive patterns of interactions
  • Facilitators who can identify maladaptive interactions in families that are linked to the youths' behavior problems
  • Facilitators who can encourage family members to support and rely on each other, rather than on the facilitator her/himself
  • Identification, recruitment and engagement of families at risk
  • Regularly scheduled family sessions
  • Flexibility in adapting the intervention to address cultural and family issues specific to each family
