Members of the Lab attended the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) research conference in Philadelphia, PA from November 20th through the 23rd. Lots of great content (e.g. multicultural competence training seminars, suicide prevention and LGBT research symposiums), as well as presentations from our Lab and its collaborators. Zac Imel and Dave Atkins held a symposium, Siri, Rate My Therapist: Interdisciplinary Research on Scaling Up the Evaluation of Psychotherapy, and discussed research and implications of developing a system of providing feedback and ratings to therapists. Brian Pace presented a poster, Why Does Motivational Interviewing Work? A Network Meta-Analysis of Adherence and Outcomes, examining how the various mechanisms of Motivational Interviewing correlate with client outcomes. The conference ended with a collaborators dinner in downtown Philly!
