A major challenge for any skills-oriented intervention is the issue of treatment generalization. Psychotherapists cannot just “train and hope” for transfer. In this presentation, Dr. Meichenbaum will discuss and demonstrate what needs to be done before, during and after interventions to make them more effective. He will discuss specific steps that psychotherapists should take to increase the likelihood of maintenance and generalization across settings and across response domains.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list the specific steps required to enhance the likelihood of treatment generalization.
  2. Given a specific training program, describe how it could be improved in order to increase the likelihood of generalization.
