Brief Intervention in Schools: The School Success Profile

by Gary L. Bowen, Michael E. Woolley, Jack M. Richman, Natasha K. Bowen
Brief Treatment and Crisis Intervention ()


The results orientation and time efficiency of brief intervention approaches are gaining popularity in schools given limited staff and resources to address the needs of an increasing number of vulnerable students. This article describes the School Success Profile (SSP), a survey instrument collecting data from students about their schools, neighborhoods, families, peers, and physical and psychological well-being. Summary profiles and reports are generated from the data for working with students and other stakeholder groups in planning and implementing brief or solution-focused interventions. Training in brief intervention to address the multilevel needs of students will be an important component of the proposed SSP Academy.
