SW 632 DSW Proseminar II: Designing Implementation Strategies

3 credits

The course builds on DSW Proseminar I, and is the next step in students’ capstone projects. Students will identify implementation strategies to address identified barriers and facilitators when translating evidence into practice, and to promote the adoption and sustainment of evidence-based interventions. Students willd esign, adapt, and/or tailor intervention processes, and target key behavioral and/or contextual determinants of uptake with an emphasis on integrating a trauma-informed human rights (TIHR) perspective. We will also identify outcomes, metrics, and assessment tools that are aligned with intervention strategies, and propose study designs and relevant methods to evaluate implementation efforts. Students will continue to consult with professional collaboration networks (PCNs) and other key stakeholders in the development of evidence-based, TIHR interventions.
