The FAST Lab

Fidelity, Adaptation, and Sustainability of Treatments 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
  • Treatment: We focus on Evidence Based Practices and Empirically Supported Treatments
