The Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology (SSCP) is making available new, no-cost materials designed to help clinicians incorporate important research findings into their clinical work.
The Translating Science to Practice project includes interviews with researchers about the clinical applications of their work, access to journal articles related to these interviews (when available), and online discussion forums where participants can discuss each interview and article.
The first interview in the series is entitled Maximizing Exposure Therapy for Anxiety Disorders. Jacqueline Persons, PhD interviews Michelle Craske, PhD about the work that she and her colleagues have done on an inhibitory learning model of fear extinction and the application of this research to treating anxious clients. Dr. Craske provides an overview of this model and addresses important questions about implications of the model for conducting exposure therapy. A recent publication by Craske and colleagues that outlines these concepts and intervention strategies is also available for download.
