Southam-Gerow, Michael A.; Hourigan, Shannon E.; Allin, Robert B., Jr.
Behavior Modification, v33 n1 p82-103 2009
This article describes the application of a university-community partnership model to the problem of adapting evidence-based treatment approaches in a community mental health setting. Background on partnership research is presented, with consideration of methodological and practical issues related to this kind of research. Then, a rationale for using partnerships as a basis for conducting mental health treatment research is presented. Finally, an ongoing partnership research project concerned with the adaptation of evidence-based mental health treatments for childhood internalizing problems in community settings is presented, with preliminary results of the ongoing effort discussed. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
