For the successful implementation and sustainability of BSFT or FET, Masters-level clinicians, or Bachelor-level clinicians with 5+ years of experience, are suggested. The key component is that the clinicians’ role be enhanced by a strong clinical team and significant administrative support.
While the clinicians need to have cultural competencies akin to the target population, much customization is considered by FTTIM when recommending caseloads, team size and roles. One mold does not fit all. Many variables affect recommendations: home-based or center-based training, high-risk or low-risk clients, nature of the case loads, other therapeutic duties, etc.
