Brief Strategic Family Therapy for Adolescent Drug Abuse



Acknowledgements

This treatment manual was written by Jose Szapocznik, Ph.D., Olga Hervis, M.S.W., and Seth Schwartz, Ph.D., of the Center for Family Studies, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, at the University of Miami, under contract to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The treatment described in this manual was developed over the course of several decades by a team of researchers and clinicians. Among those who were integral to the development of this manual are: Mercedes Scopetta, who founded the University of Miami Center for Family Studies; Daniel Santisteban, who continues to pioneer culturally sensitive family therapy interventions for Hispanic families; Michael Robbins, who directs the Center's research on in-session processes and their relationship to treatment outcomes; Angel Perez-Vidal, who was the lead therapist in many BSFT studies; and Victoria Mitrani, who has worked intensively on a BSFT-relevant measure of family functioning.

NIDA wishes to thank all who contributed to the development of this manual, including the families who participated in this research, without whom this research would not have been possible.
