Welcome to The Penn Collaborative for CBT and Implementation Science

The Penn Collaborative for CBT and Implemention Science (Penn Collaborative) is a joint clinical, educational, and research partnership with community behavioral health providers, payers, and networks, all in pursuit of the same goal: placing tangible, evidence-based tools in the hands of the front-line staff who support individuals seeking recovery and wellness. The Penn Collaborative is committed to bring principles of Recovery and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to new and diverse populations including children and families, substance abuse, inpatient programs, residential settings, forensic populations, and people with chronic homelessness. Our empirically-supported approach to the sustained implementation of these principles is both effective and flexible, allowing for adaptation to different settings, levels of care, and populations. (Interested in joining The Penn Collaborative? Please see a description of open positions here.)

The Penn Collaborative team has expertise in the implementation of CBT for populations and settings including:

  • Externalizing Disorders (anger, violence, aggression)
  • Internalizing Disorders (depression, anxiety)
  • Substance Use Disorders
  • Trauma Exposure and Related Disorders
  • Chronic Homelessness

  • Forensic populations
  • Outpatient Treatment
