Download Handouts: 128kb pdf

Session Number: 1 Room: Meeting Room 11

Presentation Type: symposium

Chair: Kay Hodges Discussant: Karen Blase

Synopsis: Training on an EBP, Parent Management Training-Oregon Model (PMTO), has been implemented with the workforce in Michigan's public mental health system. Building the state's capacity to sustain the training of additional practitioners and the monitoring of treatment fidelity will be described, as well as the client outcome data for practitioners trained in PMTO. Forgatch provides a purveyor's perspective in her discussion of processes involved in transferring methods from program purveyors to systems of care. She addresses the need to attend to efficiency, sustained fidelity, and positive outcomes. Wotring presents the perspective of a state administrator, with an emphasis on leadership issues and financing strategies. Gray discusses the model for sustaining training and fidelity monitoring at both the state and local levels in Michigan. Hodges presents the client outcome data for families who received training from the practitioners participating in the first wave of PMTO statewide training.

Transferring Evidence-Based Practice to the Community: A Dynamic Collaborative Process

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

Presenting: Marion Forgatch

All Authors for this paper: Marion Forgatch

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: Now that Evidence Based Practices are priority treatments for community service providers, we must learn to transfer methods from program purveyors to systems of care with efficiency, sustained fidelity and positive outcomes. This presentation describes methods for the large-scale implementation of Parent Management Training Oregon Model (PMTO). Lessons learned are from implementations in Norway, Iceland, the Netherlands, and Michigan. Collaboration is recommended to adapt for culture and contexts, troubleshoot barriers, and accomplish long-term goals.
