CE Credits: 3 Speaker: Lee Williams, PhD
This workshop will educate therapists on how to use research to enhance their clinical work. The workshop will begin by describing the potential benefits of using research to inform clinical work, as well as some of the challenges that might be encountered. The workshop will then examine various ways in which research might be used to inform therapy. Much of the workshop will be devoted to teaching therapists five core skills (The 5 A’s) for using research to answer clinical questions. These skills include how to ask questions that research might help answer, how to acquire research to answer the question, how to appraise the quality of the research, how to apply the findings, and how to analyze the effectiveness of the treatment, and adjust as necessary.
