Adapting empirically supported treatments in the era of integrated care: A roadmap for success


Clinical Psychology

Published online on


--- - |2 Abstract The emerging era of integrated care represents a major opportunity for clinical psychology to migrate empirically supported treatments (ESTs) into the mainstream of public health. To succeed will require us to modify current ESTs to make them brief, cost‐effective, patient‐centered and acceptable to and easily learned by both the mental health and health‐care professionals that will deliver them. Changes to the recently modified standards for designating ESTs are proposed that will facilitate adoption of a population health model of treatment development and testing, designed to promote rapid dissemination of empirically supported interventions that are a “good fit” for integrated settings. Defining characteristics of the “new look” for ESTs are examined. - 'Clinical Psychology: Science and Practice, Volume 25, Issue 3, September 2018.
