In a collaborative effort with our sister organization, Connections Counseling, PLLC, BPTI IMG_2201collected and analyzed the data from the online trainings which were given in 2014. The most interesting outcome was that Motivation and Knowledge were the most important factors in a counselor’s use of CBT with clients with Substance Use Disorders. Confidence was not a predictor. The paper below was not published, but remains a summary of the data we collected. The abstract is published here, the attached pdf contains the entire paper.

Abstract: There is an increasing demand for social workers and social work students to be prepared for practice with clients with Substance Use Disorders. This study examines the outcomes of an online training designed to increase clinician confidence, motivation and knowledge concerning Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) use with clients with Substance Use Disorders. Study outcomes demonstrated significant correlations between Motivation and Knowledge subscales and one measure of implementation (percent caseload) with which 60 trainees used CBT practice at follow-up. Clinician Confidence was not a significant predictor of implementation. Implications for social work education are discussed.
