"For the past 15 years, the fields of education and psychology have been active in the evidence-based practice (EBP) movement that began in the medical field in the early 1990s. However, an ongoing problem in this movement is a research to practice gap... Despite the development of many EBPs, few have been implemented and sustained by practitioners in school and mental health settings. In addition, when practitioners adopt an EBP, the level of implementation fidelity is often low and thus unsuccessful."

Read more in Division 15's latest Psychology Today post, authored by Joseph M. Lucyshyn (University of British Columbia), by clicking the article preview below. This post is the fifth in Past President Nancy's Perry's 2016 theme, "Bridging Theory and Practice Through Productive Partnerships (find links to all of the blogs here: http://apadiv15.org/2015-2016-presidential-blog/).
Innovative research methods and dissemination practices are leading the way.
