Overcoming Barriers to Successful Implementation of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

text A A A

Sections

Excerpt

One barrier to utilization of CBT may be doubts that the results of RCTs will generalize to service settings. Differences may exist between research- and service-oriented settings in clientele, resources, and treatment providers; therefore, it is important to extend research on CBT into more practice-oriented settings. A study of 81 community mental health center (CMHC) patients showed that they achieved as much benefit from a 15-session CBT protocol as participants in stringently controlled efficacy studies (Wade et al. 1998). In the CMHC sample, 87% of CBT completers were panic free at posttreatment. These patients manifested significant improvement on measures of anxiety, agoraphobia, and depression and decreased their use of benzodiazepines. These results suggest that the benefits of CBT are not restricted to clinicians or patients who are willing to conform to the stringent formats that accompany research studies.
