MATCH – ADTC As an Evidence-Based Practice in Youth Mental Health

Anxiety, depression, trauma, and conduct problems are issues that a growing number of young people are facing.  As these numbers continue to rise, providers are addressing these issues on a regular basis. The rise in these issues is not entirely surprising given what seems to be constant turmoil in the world today.  Life has simply become more stressful for kids over time.  Anxiety, depression, trauma, and conduct problems don’t relegate themselves to a specific age group, gender, or race.  They are seen in all ages, genders, and races.  Providers are seeking ways to help their young clients through evidence-based practices that they can turn to as reliable sources of research, information, and therapy modalities.  MATCH – ADTC is one such evidence-based practice currently available to providers and aimed at children and adolescents, ages 5-15.  If you are a provider who has not yet tried MATCH – ADTC, now is the time!

MATCH – ADTC is available through PracticeWise.  It offers providers a wide variety of resources they can use to address the issues today’s youths are facing.  It allows the provider to address the primary clinical target while also identifying therapeutic roadblocks before they slow the treatment’s progress.

PracticeWise not only offers MATCH – ADTC but also offers the training to enable you, as the provider, to know how to effectively use this resource to its fullest extent.  When we get a new phone, how many of us actually read through a manual or pay attention as we scroll through a tutorial to know how to use every shortcut, built-in app, etc?  We are short-changing ourselves by not using all of our phone’s capabilities.  In the same way, having an amazing resource like MATCH – ADTC without the proper training will prevent you from understanding all that it offers both you and your clients.  This article will take a deeper look at MATCH – ADTC and the training offered by PracticeWise.  You will agree that, as a provider, it is a must!

What is MATCH – ADTC?

 Navigating the landscape of behavioral health often involves encountering a plethora of acronyms and abbreviations.  MATCH – ADTC stands for Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or Conduct Problems.

MATCH – ADTC offers providers a combination of 33 procedures drawn from the most successful evidence-based treatments into a single, flexible system.  Imagine having step-by-step therapy modules available to you that include rehearsal activities, example scripts, and helpful hints.  That’s what MATCH – ADTC offers!  It includes monitoring forms to help you track progress.  It also includes handouts for children and their caregivers.  After all, progress and success are more likely when it involves a team effort.

MATCH – ADTC allows you to select the primary clinical target area.  It will guide you through well-organized resources related to the target area.  It will also help you guide your patients through potential roadblocks, such as comorbid issues or unexpected life stressors.  A problem that seems small to an adult may loom large in the eyes of a child.  Addressing such stressors as they occur can help keep therapy on track with continued progress for the child.
