  • Levels of Evidence
    Our workshops, certificate programs and other course descriptions provide information about the Empirically Supported Treatment (research supported) that the training content includes. Some trainings may focus on a single treatment model. Others may draw upon several models with varying levels of ESTs or reference content based on the best research available at this time.  When there are reputable websites that describe the research or level of EST for the training content, the description of the training will provide a link to that web page. In instances where this is not available or the content includes more than one level of research as described on this page, the describe will reference the level or levels you see below. Our goal is to be transparent in assisting you to make informed decisions as you select training that best meets your needs. For trainings that do not involve treatment content, there may be related research and the training description will reflect the level(s) of this research.
