How Does MAP Work?

The MAP toolkit disaggregates the components of successful evidence-based treatments and pairs them with decision making tools designed to meet the needs of providers, children, adolescents, and their families.

The Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP) system is designed to improve the quality, efficiency, and outcomes of children’s mental health services by giving clinicians easy access to the most current scientific information and by providing user-friendly measurement information resources and clinical protocols. Using an online database, the system can suggest formal evidence-based programs or, alternatively, can provide detailed recommendations about discrete components of evidence-based treatments relevant to a specific youth’s characteristics. Whether services are delivered through existing evidence-based programs or assembled from components, the MAP system also adds a unifying evaluation framework that tracks outcomes and practices on a graphical “dashboard.”

MAP includes the following:

Direct Services Training Overview

The MATCH Direct Services Training Series teaches mental health professionals to use the MATCH program to improve their direct care to clients. The program’s primary aim is for professionals to develop proficiency in the selection, organization, and delivery of the common practices included in the MATCH program. This series satisfies a prerequisite for the MATCH Supervision and Consultation Training Series.
