This chapter offers an up-to-date survey of the best available evidence for SFBT. There is a lot of good news here for SFBT practitioners and researchers alike. First of all, as this chapter amply demonstrates, SFBT has been increasingly shown to be an effective treatment for a range of mental health and behavioral problems and is now listed as an evidence-based practice by federal agencies like Substance Abuse Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA). Additionally, the research base for SFBT as an evidence-based practice in school settings is also growing, indicating that SFBT is a workable and empirically-supported alternative to other approaches that are more driven by deficit thinking and labeling of students. This chapter outlines the “state of the science” for this exciting approach.
