"Achieving ACT Program Fidelity in a Pre- and Post-Pandemic Era" is the topic of the August 1st meeting. This 90-minute meeting for ACT Teams​​​​ is hosted and facilitated by the Northwest MHTTC and the Institute for Best Practices at the University of North Carolina.


ABOUT THIS EVENT

For the past 2 ½ years, a national study of ACT has been underway, led by Dr. Lorna Moser, with Drs. Maria Monroe-DeVita, Lynette Studer, and Gary Cuddeback as Co-Investigators. Lorna and Maria will share preliminary results of pre-pandemic fidelity data from 216 teams across 11 US States (all de-identified in this presentation). We will share observations of why teams may succeed and struggle with aspects of ACT practice and facilitate a discussion around where things stand now as it relates to ACT practice as we continue out of the height of the pandemic. We will discuss what is currently needed to support existing teams across the US and discuss considerations for regions looking to expand ACT capacity.

The Northwest MHTTC, in collaboration with the Institute for Best Practices at the University of North Carolina, co-facilitates a regular virtual consultation call with ACT teams and ACT stakeholders. Each meeting consists of a mini-didactic training on a topic of relevance and interest to ACT teams (at times circling back to topics related to navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and related issues as they come up), as well as opportunities to pose consultation questions and learn from other ACT teams and their shared experiences within ACT.
