Several members of the Bridges grant project team presented their research at the prestigious North American Society for Psychotherapy Research conference this past September. The conference was held this year in beautiful Snowbird, Utah.
Dr. Scott Richards, Dr. Peter Sanders, Dr. Michael Barkham, Dr. Jason McBride, and two Ph.D. students, Anthony Rose and Russ Jackson, joined together to present a symposium titled “Bringing Psychotherapy Process Research to Routine Outcome Monitoring.”
The team described the Bridges Assessment System and Therapist Session Checklist that are being used to collect data in the John Templeton Foundation funded big data project about spiritually integrated psychotherapies.
Later that same afternoon, Dr. Scott Richards, Dr. Michael Barkham, Dr. Peter Sanders, and Dr. Stevan Nielsen led a panel discussion titled ” How to Launch a Successful Psychotherapy Practice-Research Network: What Have We Learned (So Far)?”
In this discussion, the presenters shared with the audience their experiences leading the Bridges practice-research network, as well as several other big data projects they have been involved in, including Dr. Barkham’s experiences with big data research projects in the United Kingdom and Dr. Nielsen’s experiences in the USA.
Several other grant recipients and Bridges team members presented at the conference, including Dr. Jesse Owen and Dr. Joshua Swift. The Bridges team members enjoyed the beautiful mountain scenery at Snowbird, delicious food and great conversations.
