The "real world" working conditions of today's mental health care environments allows less time for professionals to respond to increasingly complex issues. With often competing expectations from various members of the professional systems, the priority of keeping the children and families that are seeking help at the centre of the therapeutic change process has become even more challenging. Brief Competency-Based Therapy was developed based on forty years of outcome research, a multitude of hours of supervising and conducting clinical sessions, and paying close attention to children and families' feedback about "what works" in every step of the therapeutic process.
