Programs that meet all three of the following criteria tend to fall in the green, evidence-based end of the continuum:
- Demonstrated effectiveness in rigorous scientific evaluations including randomized control trials.
- Was assessed in large studies with diverse populations or through multiple replications by independent researchers (not the developer of the model)
- Resulted in significant and sustained effects for a minimum of 6 months, post program.
