Heading 5

The time slot for a presentation is 30 minutes for 1 presenter, 45 minutes for multiple presenters.

Please leave 10-15 minutes for discussion and group interaction as your topic is likely to stimulate much interest among members.


It is important, also, that presenters clearly link their presentation to School-Based Family Counseling theory and literature.


The best sources for current SBFC literature are:

1. the Proceedings listed on this website and available on Amazon











2. the following SBFC texts authored mainly by our members:

3.  the International Journal for School-Based Family Counseling (see link below)






The attached Chapter 1 from the  text: School-Based Family Counseling: Transforming Family-School Relationships gives a useful overview. The chapter also includes the SBFC Model which provides a map for conceptualizing the variety of family and school interventions and may provide a useful way of linking your presentation to other SBFC interventions.







You should also familiarize your self with the SBFC Metamodel and how your presentation relates to it:
