Pros and cons of educational technologies as methods for disseminating evidence-based treatments
The article by Weingardt (this issue) proposes the adoption of instructional design technologies (IDTs) for the dissemination of empirically supported psychological therapies (ESTs). Although the use of such tools for the dissemination of ESTs clearly has multiple benefits, it is important to consider the broader implications of these approaches for clinical research and treatment. We suggest that reliance of educationally based technologies could have important consequences for the way in which the scientist-practitioner relationship is framed. Furthermore, we propose that the adoption of IDT principles raises some significant practical and conceptual concerns about the future directions of psychotherapy research and practice. © American Psychological Association D12 2004; all rights reserved.
