Many efforts to develop and test evidence-based treatments fail to take account the complexity of problems seen in the community settings where most mental health services are rendered. Widely applicable evidence-based assessments (EBAs) can bridge gaps between evidence-based treatments and the diverse providers, cases, and conditions characterizing community services. This address examines directions for future research to bridge gaps between research and services, increase use of EBAs, and help providers base service decisions on EBAs.

Learning Objective
Describe strategies to bridge the gap between the research and services within diverse community settings.

Achenboch Dr. Achenbach is a Professor of Psychiatry, Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for Children Youth and Families at the University of Vermont. His research focuses on developing, testing, and disseminating multicultural methods for assessing behavioral, emotional and social problems and adaptive functioning. This work includes collaboration with colleagues in many cultures to apply standardized assessment methods, perform multicultural comparisons, and improve understanding, assessment, and treatment of psychopathology throughout the world. He developed the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), a widely used standardized measure for evaluating maladaptive behavioral and emotional problems among children and adolescents.
