In this innovative and reader-friendly guide, leading researchers from the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center examine the implementation of evidence-based practices in behavioral health and offer practical strategies for bringing these practices into routine clinical settings. They look at implementation as a specific process, a set of activities and responsibilities designed to successfully launch a practice and integrate it into routine care, using strategies carried out across many levels of an organization and at various stages.
Implementing Evidence Based Practices in Behavioral Health concludes with answers to frequently asked questions, an interview with an agency director in the field who has successfully gone through the implementation process, and an appendix with tools, assessments, and other resources to smooth the process of implementation, which are all included on the accompanying CD-ROM.
