Treatment Integrity: A Foundation for Evidence-Based Practice in Applied Psychology
Treatment integrity, in its broadest sense, is the extent to which an intervention is implemented as intended. Over the past 3 decades, understanding of treatment integrity has greatly evolved.
This book summarizes the current state of our knowledge of treatment integrity on such topics as
- how it fits into the larger contexts of evidence-based practice and implementation science
- its relation to ethics and the law
- conceptual models, assessment, promotion, and application
- conceptual models of treatment integrity in the fields of medicine, prevention science, and health psychology
- assessment of treatment integrity itself
- how a conceptual model can inform the development of a comprehensive treatment integrity assessment system
- its use in practice and research in education and psychology
