Dr. Karol L. Kumpfer, developer of SFP, was recently retained as a consultant for an October 2007 United Nations expert meeting in Vienna, Austria on family-based approaches to prevention. The conference reflects the widening acceptance of family-based approaches at the most effective prevention strategies worldwide. Overseas SFP trainings and implementation in recent years include Sweden, England, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Russia, Thailand, Spain, Costa Rica, and El Salvador. Translation and adaptations of language, exercises and graphics and supporting materials are typically involved in creating a national adaptation of an SFP program.
