NC CTP Launches EBT Clinical Service Delivery Time Model Series

The North Carolina Child Treatment Program is excited to announce the release of the NC CTP Clinical Service Delivery Time Model templates for Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Lead authors for the three templates include Dana Hagele, MD, MPH, Director; Heather Pane Seifert, PhD, MPP, Associate Clinical Training Director; Mellicent O’Brien Blythe, LCSW, Implementation Specialist; and Jerica Knox, MS; with contributions from Donna Potter, LCSW, CPP and TF-CBT Clinical Faculty; Rachel Maid, MSW, LCSW, CPP Improvement Advisor; and Darden White, MEd, LCMHC, PCIT Associate Director and Clinical Faculty.

NC CTP Clinical Service Delivery Time Model templates for CPP, PCIT, and TF-CBT were developed to support service utilization data collection, aggregation, and analysis at the level of the client, caseload, and agency. Additionally, they may be used to: establish agency-level service capacity; monitor intervention-specific processes and cost; and to develop a cost model that reflects the clinical delivery requirements of its respective evidence-based treatment (EBT). Each of the time model templates define a “typical” case as one in which the EBT is delivered in an outpatient setting, to a client presenting with moderate clinical complexity, in the primary language of both client and caregiver.

NC CTP populated the time model tools with case-level estimates to provide guidance regarding the development and sustainment of an outpatient program in the specified EBT. Estimates are based on the peer-reviewed literature, trainer experience, and service utilization data from large cohorts of clients associated with NC CTP clinical trainees and graduates.

 

NC CTP anticipates the Clinical Service Delivery Time Model templates for CPP, PCIT, and TF-CBT will serve as valuable resources, especially considering the high level of collaboration and careful attention to detail with which they were produced, as mental health providers determine how to integrate one or more of these models into their practice. To further build upon this work, NC CTP faculty are currently developing Clinical Service Delivery Time Model templates for three additional EBTs in our array: Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS); Problematic Sexual Behavior Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for School-age Children (PSB-CBT-S); and Problematic Sexual Behavior Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for School-age Adolescents (PSB-CBT-A). The authors also aim to create Clinical Service Delivery Time Model workbooks to assist agencies and payors in using NC CTP’s time model templates to understand the costs of implementing each EBT.
