Implementing and Practicing Collaborative Problem Solving with Integrity
This chapter will help the reader understand the importance of maintaining integrity to the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach and describes tools available for assessing CPS integrity. It includes a brief review of the literature on treatment integrity and discusses CPS integrity at the individual caregiver level (e.g., how do we ensure that a clinician or other caregiver is “doing” CPS well) and at the agency level. Finally, the authors present recommendations for how an individual in an organization can measure, monitor, and improve CPS integrity, based on their experiences assessing CPS integrity in agencies that have implemented CPS site-wide.
