Solution-Focused Brief Therapy Research Page
Pre-conference research meeting- NOV 10th.... Details coming soon
Solution Focused Brief Therapy has been officially listed in the Office of Juvenile Justice's Model Programs Guide, with other evidence-based programs. SFBT has been rated "Promising," which is the first of three possible ratings, based on the number and strength of the empirical research supporting it. This is an important step in SFBT's acceptance as an evidenced-based approach. As you may know, some agencies are beginning to review treatment models and programs and decide whether they meet their criteria for being "evidence-based."
We want to thank Sara Smock (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Johnny Kim (email@example.com) for preparing and submitting the materials for the OJJ review. They have been working on similar submissions with other agencies, and we will report the results as we receive them.
