Therapist Attitudes Towards Evidence-Based Practice: A Joint Factor Analysis

Therapist Attitudes Towards Evidence-Based Practice: A Joint Factor Analysis Despite the accumulated research support for the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) with youth, these treatment approaches remain underutilized in community settings. Therapist attitudes towards EBPs play a pivotal role in their adoption and implementation of these practices. The present investigation employs joint exploratory factor analysis to evaluate the structure of two measures of therapist attitudes, the Evidence-Based Practices Attitudes Scale and the Modified Practice Attitude Scale. Results suggest three factors including (a) importance of clinical experience over EBPs, (b) clinician openness to change, and (c) problems with EBPs. Recommendations are provided for future evaluation of therapist attitudes and associated characteristics. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Behavioral Health Services & Research Springer Journals
