Mission/Objectives

The Research in Clinical Practice Collaborative is designed to bridge the gap between clinical practice and applied science. Our mission is to help members gather data that informs clinical decision making and that contributes to research. Members of this SIG will contribute their unique expertise, clinical experience, research questions, and skills in order to

  • facilitate practical implementation of research practices,
  • monitor treatment progress,
  • implement evidence-based-practices,
  • and generate practice-based-evidence.

We plan to empower and support clinicians in utilizing research methods in their practice (through single case design, case formulation, and treatment progress monitoring), the goals of which are to improve client outcomes and contribute to treatment development efforts.
