The BSFT® Program helps children and adolescents who exhibit rebelliousness, truancy, delinquency, early substance use, and association with problem peers. The BSFT® program also benefits families that are affected by poor behavior management, parental discord, anger, blaming interactions, and other problematic relations. The BSFT® Program was developed for use in rural, urban, and suburban settings. It can be implemented in community social services agencies, mental health clinics, substance abuse prevention and treatment clinics, health agencies, and family clinics. The BSFT® Program can also be implemented as a home-based intervention. The BSFT® Program provides families with the tools to overcome individual and family risk factors through: 1) focused sessions to improve maladaptive patterns of family interaction, and 2) skills building strategies to strengthen families.
