Treatment Integrity: Revisiting Some Big Ideas
Greenwood, Charles R.
School Psychology Review, v38 n4 p547-553 2009
The contributors to this special issue have helped everyone consider the next steps in building a research and practice agenda regarding the use of treatment integrity. Such an agenda must converge with the big ideas that link treatment integrity to the effectiveness of evidence-based practices (EBPs), and ultimately that of the profession. In this commentary, the author discusses six big ideas that when taken together will provide a foundation for the logic and goals of treatment integrity measurement and research: (1) reaping the benefits of scale; (2) the technological dimension and replication; (3) the nature of behavioral and educational intervention; (4) strength of treatment; (5) the need for convergent and divergent validity in treatment integrity measures; and (6) the intent-to-treat versus the on-protocol continuum of effect size.
