California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse (CEBC)
The 3-5-7 Model™ was included in the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse (CEBC) for Child Welfare in August 2011. CEBC is an agency that tracks and rates child welfare practices/interventions. The model is listed at the highest relevancy level by CEBC. 3-5-7 Model™ does not yet have the type of published, peer-reviewed research that meets the CEBC criteria for a scientific rating of 1 – 5. Therefore, the program has been given the classification of “NR – Not able to be Rated.”
