Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Students will learn principles and models of how clinical psychologists work to disseminate and implement evidence-based psychotherapy (EBP) from research laboratories into community mental health systems. Students will explore how psychotherapy researchers, trainers, mental health administrators and clinicians are all an integral part of expanding the impact of clinical psychology as a field and reducing the burden of mental illness on society. Students will learn and practice the basic skills of one EBP, Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) as a vehicle to understanding the challenges and opportunities of disseminating manualized treatments into complex community mental health systems.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course is designed to give students an introduction to the theoretical and practical issues surrounding the current movement to more widely disseminate Evidence-Based Psychotherapies (EBP) in community settings. As such, this course will give students an understanding of the complexities involved with insuring that community members receive psychotherapy that is informed by rigorous research through effective dissemination efforts. Specifically, this course will focus on questions such as:

1) Why is the EBP movement important, and how do we understand the “gap” between science and practice?

2) How do we define what constitutes an EBP?

3) What are the strengths and limitations of the EBP movement?

4) What are the current theoretical models that guide the dissemination of EBP’s in community mental health settings?

5) Are EBP’s effective in community settings?

6) How does culture affect dissemination?

7) How can we evaluate what are the most effective dissemination methods?

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), a well-known EBP for children with oppositional behavior disorders, will be used throughout the course to illustrate how the questions above apply to a specific manualized psychotherapy model that is currently being widely disseminated. That is, PCIT will be used as an example to show how a therapy model becomes “evidence-based,” how therapy models are disseminated in the community, why the process of dissemination in the community is difficult, and how evaluation efforts regarding therapy outcomes and dissemination efforts take place. As part of this learning process, students will have the opportunity to learn and practice basic PCIT therapy skills used to manage oppositional children’s problematic behaviors (these skills will be taught through in-class role-plays and demonstrations). While this training will not certify students as PCIT therapists, it will provide students useful interaction skills with behavior disordered children and their parents, and begin to illustrate the complexities of delivering, training, implementing, and evaluating an EBP such as PCIT.
