The Therapist Affect Phobia Study is designed to assist trainees in their personal and professional development as clinician/researchers. Trainees are not required to participate in the study, but we’ve found that most trainees find the process beneficial to their overall training experience. We are pleased we have been able to present on the initial data from these CORE-training surveys in Boston during the last IEDTA conference, and that we’ll continue to collect data to be able to show long-term changes in therapists over time. We are looking forward to presenting the data of the next two years in Venice in 2021.
