Working Group 4
The overall aim of WG4 is to review research methods for examining youth (process and outcome) psychotherapy research from systematic reviews and expert consultation, with the particular focus to be identified from WG1 and WG2.
Age customized research designs
We will then aim to identify gaps in methods, or gaps in how to involve youth in research methods, and how we can best address these gaps, in consultation with young people and families.
In this webinar you hear Chief Assistant Professor Camellia Hancheva presenting research and examples on: How to design relevant studies?
Status report by the end of the Action September 2021
WG4 have co-produced, with youth with lived experience of mental health difficulties, two sets of guidelines.
One is practice guidelines for researchers on how to practically conduct involvement of young people in the design and delivery of psychotherapy research. The second is reporting guidelines for researchers on how to describe the involvement of young people in the design and delivery of their research project that they conducted.
These are critically important to address the gap, identified through the activities of WG4, on the consistency with which young people are involved in the design and delivery of psychotherapy research.
