Randomized Controlled Trial of Family Assessment with Feedback Intervention at the Plainfield Health Center

The study at the Plainfield Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center, is a small randomized clinical trial of the Family Assessment with Feedback Intervention (FAFI), a component of the VFBA. The FAFI is a brief, manualized, family-focused intervention that uses evidence-based assessment-with-feedback in a motivational enhancement framework. The FAFI involves engaging family members in a discussion of the results of assessment of both children’s and parents’ competencies and problems and the family environment using Motivational Interviewing techniques. It aims to enhance parents’ and children’s treatment engagement with mental health services to ultimately improve children’s clinical outcomes. The study is sponsored by the Bi-State Primary Care Association. For more information about the FAFI and the Plainfield Project, please contact Masha Ivanova, Ph.D.: Masha.Ivanova@uvm.edu
