On November 17th – November 20th, 2022, researchers from the Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring collaborated on poster presentations and a symposium for the 2022 Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT) conference. The theme of the conference included Emergency & Disaster Preparedness and Response: Using Cognitive and Behavioral Science to Make an Impact. Researchers included Alexandra Werntz, Jean Rhodes, Cyanea Poon, Selen Amado, Benlina Aier, Jordan Cherry, and Megyn Jasman.
These presentations overviewed important findings from a broader project investigating caregivers’ attitudes regarding mental health treatment, digital mental health intervention use, and mentor involvement in child mental health care, especially across caregivers from diverse backgrounds. Our attendees also had the opportunity to hear from and network with other leaders in the field. Presentations can be found below.
