Training and Support
Implementation materials are user-friendly and easy to follow. Materials provide significant detail on the theory behind the strategies, step-by-step guidance in delivering the sessions, and troubleshooting guidelines to help clinicians. Thorough training and support resources are available that pay close attention to organization, supervisor, and clinician needs. Organizational support, detailed process checklists, and sample evaluation plans contribute to a complete quality assurance protocol.
