It is critical for behavioral health agencies to use and sustain evidence-based practices (EBPs). Through a series of instruction, self-study and group activities, this 4-week series will show how to facilitate EBPs through hiring and leadership practices. The first two weeks will cover best practices for hiring staff who may be more likely to deliver evidence-based care. The series will show how to use behavioral interviewing to identify knowledge, skills or values that are consistent with an agency’s goals. One behavioral exercise will show how to identify applicants who may have an aptitude for reflective listening, a key ingredient in the delivery of EBPs. The second two weeks will discuss key elements of leadership that support effective implementation of EBPs. The series will show how to assess the degree to which a leader is perceived by staff as proactive, knowledgeable, supportive, and perseverant with regard to their implementation of EBPs. Identifying strong and weak leadership areas can help agencies retain staff, strengthen EBP implementation, and improve the overall quality of care.
