March 2009Vol. 10, No. 2Evidence-Based Practice Online Trainings
Several free online trainings are now available from the Evidence-Based Behavioral Practice (EBBP) Project to teach the concepts and skills needed to perform evidence-based interventions. Funded by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research at the National Institutes of Health, the trainings teach professionals:
- How to evaluate and conduct a systematic review of research
- Strategies for choosing and using EBBP information tools
- Steps of the EBBP process, including practice with a simulated client and/or community
The goals of the EBBP Project are to create tools to improve research and practice training for psychosocial interventions, build the evidence base for behavioral treatments, and upgrade evidence-based behavioral practice. The Project also offers definitions and competencies of evidence-based behavioral practice, an online forum, newsletters, and a bibliography.
The trainings are 30 to 60 minutes in length, presented in an interactive video format. Visit the website to access them and find out about other resources:
