Ditty MS, Landes SJ, Doyle A, Beidas RS. It Takes a Village: A Mixed Method Analysis of Inner Setting Variables and Dialectical Behavior Therapy Implementation. Administration and policy in mental health. 2015 Nov 1; 42(6):672-81.
Abstract: Guided by the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research, this mixed method study explored the relationship between inner setting variables and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) implementation. Intensively trained DBT clinicians completed an online quantitative survey (n = 79) and a subset were sequentially interviewed using qualitative methods (n = 20) to identify relationships between inner setting variables and DBT implementation. Four interpersonal variables-team cohesion, team communication, team climate, and supervision-were correlated with the quantity of DBT elements implemented. Qualitative themes corroborated these findings. Additional variables were connected to implementation by either quantitative or qualitative findings, but not both.
