Abstract : The purpose of this 4 year, randomized trial and comparative effectiveness study is to design, implement and evaluate a cost effective, web based self paced training program to provide skills-oriented continuing education for mental health professionals. The objective is to learn whether novel, internet-based training methods, with or without web-centered supervision, may provide an effective means to train increasing numbers of mental health providers in relevant, evidence-based clinical skills. The study will launch during the first quarter of the second year grant cycle. There are no research findings to date.
