Abstract

PURPOSE:

Limited information on intervention fidelity is available in published studies with youth and families. The components of intervention fidelity, the complexity of measurement in these studies, and strategies for measuring intervention fidelity are described.

CONCLUSIONS:

Strategies for ensuring intervention fidelity according to the Treatment Fidelity Workgroup of the Behavior Change Consortium in the areas of study design, provider training, treatment delivery, treatment receipt, and treatment enactment provide guidance for evaluating or developing intervention fidelity plans.

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS:

Ensuring the quality of intervention fidelity in evidence-based reviews or when developing new interventions is essential for translating findings into practice.
