Do Haphazard Reviews Provide Sound Directions for Dissemination Efforts?
Gambrill, Eileen; Littell, Julia H.
American Psychologist, v65 n9 p927 Dec 2010
Comments on The dissemination and implementation of evidence-based psychological treatments: A review of current efforts by Kathryn R. McHugh and David H. Barlow. The lead article in the February-March issue by McHugh and Barlow (2010) emphasized the need for "dissemination and implementation of evidence-based psychological treatments." The authors identified a number of intervention programs as evidence based and in need of dissemination. One is multisystemic therapy (MST). They claimed that this program is among "the most successful dissemination efforts . . . pursued by treatment developers" (p. 79). McHugh and Barlow's (2010) discussion of the implementation of MST in Hawaii is troubling, because it neglected to mention concerns about the perceived lack of cultural sensitivity of the MST program in that state.
