Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Beidas’s research centers on the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based psychosocial practices (EBPs) for youth in community settings. Dr. Beidas is particularly interested in understanding how to most effectively support therapists, organizations, and systems in the implementation of EBPs. Current work involves an NIMH funded K23 MH099179 project that prospectively investigates the impact of a policy mandate on implementation of EBPs in outpatient mental health services for youth in the public sector (Policy to Implementation; P2I).
