Readiness for Dissemination Ratings by Criteria (0.0-4.0 scale)
External reviewers independently evaluate the intervention's Readiness for Dissemination
using three criteria:
- Availability of implementation materials
- Availability of training and support resources
- Availability of quality assurance procedures
For more information about these criteria and the meaning of the ratings, see Readiness for Dissemination.
Training and Support
The treatment manual is easy to follow and written in user-friendly language. The treatment manual and all other program materials can be downloaded from the program Web site at no cost to implementers. The treatment manual clearly defines the target audience and identifies the conditions and situations in which this intervention should not be used. It also provides guidance on how to build rapport with clients (both children and their caregivers) and what to do if a child enrolled in the program experiences additional trauma once treatment has begun. Several checklists to support program fidelity are available. Posttraining support is available through optional phone and email consultation.
There is no overview document to introduce implementers to the intervention and describe how the program materials should be used. The content and level of support offered after training is unclear. Although there are several tools to support fidelity, there is no written guidance on how to administer the tools and how the information should be used to improve program delivery.
