EBPI offers clinical training and technical assistance to support the implementation of EBP’s to community mental health agencies by collaborating with each regional behavioral health organization in WA State. EBPI’s training portfolio is informed by an annual needs assessment that is distributed to BHO’s and provider agencies who provide feedback into which training options they are most interested in as well as any new content that they would like to receive.

STAY is a brief intervention for families with adolescents experiencing mild disruptive behaviors. The STAY model uses a hybrid of evidence-based strategies and techniques that include parent management interventions and components of cognitive behavioral therapy which are delivered through a multi-step approach over the course of 4 sessions. At the conclusion of the 4 sessions, guidance is provided as to how to transition a family into an extended treatment, if needed.


The 4 Basic Principles of STAY encourage the family to:

1. Slow down

2. Take interest

3. Assess your role

4. Yield to someone else’s perspective
