Collecting data to test clinical hypotheses and monitor each patient's progress is an essential element of the evidence-based practice that cognitive behavior therapists strive to provide. Because the questions that interest clinicians are also often questions of interest to researchers, clinicians who routinely collect progress monitoring data from their patients also have the potential to use these data to contribute to the research literature. In this hands-on training workshop, Dr. Persons teaches some of the essentials of progress monitoring in the treatment of anxious and depressed adults, provides progress monitoring tools and measures, helps clinicians overcome impediments to progress monitoring, and describes strategies and tools (e.g., text for your treatment agreement) to help clinicians use these data to contribute to research in an ethical manner. She offers examples of studies that can be conducted and published using the types of data that clinicians routinely collect in the course of high-quality evidence-based practice. Dr. Persons will provide a monthly follow-up group video session for 6 months to attendees who would like ongoing help collecting progress monitoring data to guide treatment and contribute to research.
