Applying training evaluation models to the clinical setting
Abbreviated Journal Title
PSYCHOTHERAPY; Psychology, Multidisciplinary
Recently, the field of clinical psychology has expressed a focused concern related to treatment outcome effectiveness. It is necessary for clinicians, including military psychologists, not only to know that a treatment is effective but also to know the reasons why the treatment works. This concern is also relevant in the training evaluation field. Training research has sought to analyze the outcomes and processes of training programs, and models, such as Kirkpatrick's (1959a, 1959b, 1960a, 1960b, 1976) training evaluation model, have been devised to examine each aspect of the training process. This article provides an illustration of how advances in training research, most notably the evaluation of outcome variables, might aid clinicians in more thorough evaluations of therapies and also illustrates a common bridge between the two domains.
