Disseminating Evidence Based Interventions to Multiple Contexts: Collaborations Between University Based and Community Based Agencies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Policy makers and researchers are aware that empirically supported treatments and evidence based practices represent the wave of the future for community and clinical psychology. While there has been a major push to implement empirically supported treatments and interventions, little of this research is culturally anchored. Additionally, less of this research incorporates principals of community based participatory research or is designed for dissemination to real world practice. The Disruptive Behaviors Clinic is a university based clinic created with the mission of becoming an Evidence Based Practice paradigm for the families of children and adolescents with Disruptive Behavior Disorders.

The DBC protocol is unique in that while the central services are provided out of a university based setting, the protocol was conceptualized, designed, and implemented in collaboration with four different community based agencies. Indigenous knowledge of community experts (cultural background of clients, daily dynamics, community values and perceptions) and the technical knowledge of university experts (randomization, multivariate analyses, treatment development, and dissemination) were combined to develop this evidence based practice. Both the University based clinic and the community based agencies serve primarily low income, urban, youth whose presentation of symptoms is often commorbid. Additionally, the complexity of symptom presentation is exacerbated by contextual and cultural elements including needs which vastly exceed resources.

The purpose of this research is to investigate the dissemination of an evidence based treatment protocol for Disruptive Behavior Disorders from a university based mental health agency to community based agencies. The DBC has served 100 families at the central cite with plans to disseminate evidence based practice to affiliated community agencies. Currently, data collection at these community agencies is underway. This research will specifically focus on the tension between evidence based practices, research and service provision based on an interactive and contextual model of collaboration.
