Dr. Sara J. Czaja Publishes Book on Behavioral Intervention Research
Sara J. Czaja, Ph.D., Leonard M. Miller Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and Scientific Director of the Center on Aging, has just published Behavioral Intervention Research: Designing, Evaluating, and Implementing. Co-authored with Laura N. Gitlin, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Innovative Care in Aging at Johns Hopkins University, the book reviews state-of-the-art methodologies in conducting behavioral interventions, such as lifestyle changes, technology use in health care or behavioral approaches in depression care.
Written for masters- and doctoral-level courses, as well as novice and expert researchers in the field, it examines the most critical issues surrounding this form of research in order to maximize the ability of intervention researchers to successfully implement current and future evidence-based protocols in practice settings. Expert contributors embrace key challenges — the complexities of health care delivery, disease management and prevention, rising costs and changing population demographics — in shaping the push toward advancing more efficient and effective behavioral interventions and methodologies.
