The FAST Lab

Fidelity, Adaptation, Sustainability, and Training Lab at The National Center for PTSD

Principal Investigator: Shannon Wiltsey-Stirman, Ph.D.

 

The "Fidelity, Adaptation, Sustainability of Treatments" Lab Studies: 

  • Fidelity: The adherence to prescribed elements of treatment and competence/skill of delivery; How much a clinician follows protocol as it was originally intended
  • Adaptation: Changing specific parts of a psychotherapy (changing aspects of the protocol) to better meet the needs of an individual or constraints within the service delivery setting
  •  Sustainability: The delivery of an intervention over the long term, after original implementation supports are removed, at a level sufficient to yield the intended benefits of that intervention
  • Training: We are conducting research to learn what the most efficient and effective ways to train and support therapists as they learn to delivery evidence-based treatments.
