On-line tutorial followed by live remote training via videoconferencing
Behavioral: Internet Based CBT Training
- System Usability Scale [ Time Frame: after completion of tutorial, an expected average of 2 weeks ]User satisfaction with the technical aspects of the tutorial was assessed using the ratings on the System Usability Scale (SUS), a reliable, well-validated 10-item scale designed to evaluate the usability and user satisfaction with web-based applications and other technologies.
- CBT Concepts [ Time Frame: After completing the on line tutorial, an expected average of two weeks ]Improvement in trainees' knowledge of CBT concepts will be evaluated using a 38-item pre and post test of the items covering the tutorial content.
- Yale Adherence and Competence Scale (YACS) [ Time Frame: At day 0 (baseline) (i.e., priot to any training), and after completing the on line tutorial (an expected average of two weeks), and after completing the appled training (an exected average of 8 weeks). ]The Yale Adherence and Competence Scale (YACS) is a well-validated, scale for rating therapist adherence and competence in delivering cognitive behavioral treatments. It has been used as an outcome measure in several studies evaluating the effectiveness of different CBT rater training approaches . Therapist competence in administering specific CBT techniques is evaluated on a scale ranging from 1 (very poor) to 7 (excellent).
- User Satisfaction Questionnaire [ Time Frame: After completing the on line tutorial (an expected average of 2 weeks) ]This scale evaluates how well subjects liked the clinical content of the on-line tutorial. It contains 14 statements, each of which are rated on a 4-point scale (strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree), and covers several dimensions of the user experience . The scale ranges from 15 to 60, and has good internal consistency reliability (Cronbach's Alpha =.90, Phase I study results). An overall mean score of 45 (i.e., an average score of 3 ("agree" on all items)) is considered adequate to demonstrate acceptable user satisfaction with the clinical content.
- GAD-7 [ Time Frame: Weekly for 8 weeks of patient treatment, post training ]The GAD-7 is a well-validated self-report scale originally developed as a brief measure of GAD. It has since been validated as measure of anxiety across the domain of anxiety disorders.
