|Description: Clients have the right to effective treatment. The effectiveness of treatment is typically relegated to the academic side of the science where standards and safeguards are put in place to help identify what is and is not "effective." However, the publication system at large is rife with bias and error, and consumers of that science are often not prepared to judge where bias lies. This workshop will educate attendees on various sources of bias in research and provide tools to help determine if and how the literature should inform practice.
|Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be able to: (1) identify common biases and errors in research; (2) describe how these biases and errors can influence research and publication; (3) describe ways in which the behavior-analytic literature can be incorporated into practice given these biases and errors
|Activities: The format combines lectures, targeted reading, discussion, and small group activities
|Audience: Intermediate; clinic directors, employees, graduate students
