Treatment integrity, in its broadest sense, is the extent to which an intervention is implemented as intended. Over the past 3 decades, understanding of treatment integrity has greatly evolved.

This book summarizes the current state of our knowledge of treatment integrity on such topics as

  • how it fits into the larger contexts of evidence-based practice and implementation science
  • its relation to ethics and the law
  • conceptual models, assessment, promotion, and application
  • conceptual models of treatment integrity in the fields of medicine, prevention science, and health psychology
  • assessment of treatment integrity itself
  • how a conceptual model can inform the development of a comprehensive treatment integrity assessment system
  • its use in practice and research in education and psychology

Authoritative and up to date, this volume is a unique resource for all professionals supervising, providing, or evaluating intervention services, including researchers and practitioners in clinical, counseling, and school psychology; child and adolescent psychiatry; social work; communication disorders; special and general education; program evaluation; and educational leadership.
