Application of cognitive-behavioural family intervention for schizophrenia in multidisciplinary teams : what can the matter be?
Kavanagh, David J., Piatkowska, Olga, Clark, Dianne, & O'Halloran, Paul (1993) Application of cognitive-behavioural family intervention for schizophrenia in multidisciplinary teams : what can the matter be? Australian Psychologist, 28(3), pp. 181-188.
Surveyed 45 therapists who had participated in a family intervention for schizophrenia training program to examine the difficulties they had encountered, their recall of the intervention strategies, and the extent that they thought the approach had become integrated in their everyday work. Between 6 mo and 3 yrs after the family training, Ss reported the number of families they had systematically treated, and the difficulties they had encountered. Allowance of time to undertake the intervention, afterhours scheduling, and illness or holidays presented particular difficulties. Only 4% reported that their knowledge of behavioral techniques was a problem, but in a written test most therapists did not display minimum recall of the material of cognitive therapy, social skills training, or behavioral strategies. The study demonstrated significant problems in disseminating cognitive-behavioral approaches to multidisciplinary settings.
