The SABA International Development Grant helped facilitate a project to implement and evaluate the effectiveness of behavioral family therapy (BFT) to treat disruptive behavior of 2- to 7-year-olds in mainland China. Additionally, caregivers' feedback was collected to inform improvements to therapy for families. The treatment protocol was based on the empirically supported program, “Helping the Noncompliant Child” (McMahon and Forehand, 2003). The study played an important role in disseminating BFT in China and accommodating BFT for Chinese families. The grant helped to establish a therapy room at Shanghai Normal University.
