Training and Supervision: What is Usual about Treatment as Usual?

We're sorry, handouts are not available for this presentation.

Presenting: Kathleen Carroll

All Authors for this paper: Kathleen Carroll

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: The extent to which "real world" clinicians can effectively implement evidence-based practices (EBP), and the type of training, supervision, and support needed to do so, is as of yet unclear. We will review data from a number of randomized training studies evaluating the type of training needed to effectively implement novel therapies in clinical trials. We also will present data from the NIDA Clinical Trials Network regarding the extent to which clinicians' self-reported delivery of EBP matches independent ratings of audiotapes. Results show that intensive training coupled with performance-based supervision is likely to be needed for "real world" practitioners to effectively deliver EBP.

All Authors for this paper: Lisa Reiter-Lavery; Sonja Schoenwald

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: In this presentation, the elements of the Multisystemic Therapy (MST) supervision model and the assessment of supervisory adherence will be described. Findings from the Transportability Study related to supervisor adherence will be reviewed briefly. The current orientation for MST supervisors and its evolution will be described. A primary focus will be on the evolution of the training processes for MST supervisors as the dissemination of MST has moved from the research world into the field, and implications for the field as evidence-based practices continue to be disseminated into the front lines.

Presenting: Kimberly Hoagwood

All Authors for this paper: Kimberly Hoagwood; Mary McKay; James Rodriguez; Alissa Taylor

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: The Evidence Based Training and Dissemination Center (EBTDC) is an initiative through the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) to train front-line clinicians in OMH licensed clinics in the use of CBT treatments for youth with internalizing disorders. Development of the model has linked intensive 3-day training in the use of manualized CBT treatments for trauma, with ongoing case consultation. Current model development includes training on McKay's evidence based practices engagement strategies to improve family access, retention, and satisfaction. The importance of integrating clinical training on specific therapies with process strategies to improve family involvement in services will be described in this presentation.

Session Number: 52 Room: Salon D

Presenting: Dean Fixsen

All Authors for this paper: Dean Fixsen

Presentation Type: brief symposium

Synopsis: Several reviews of human services have found inconsistent, ineffective, and sometimes harmful services being provided to consumers. Evidence-based programs (EBPs) are being developed to provide effective alternative services for these consumers. Successful implementation of EBPs with benefits to consumers has proven to be difficult. This presentation focuses on coaching as a key ingredient in many successful EBP implementation attempts.
