Treating teens with mental health issues is about to become more scientific. Vanderbilt’s Peabody College researchers have just finished developing the Peabody Treatment Progress Battery, or PTPB. This short battery of questions will help clinicians evaluate their teenage clients’ progress. Until now, there was not a system to evaluate treatment effectiveness outside of the labratory. Many clinicians simply used the labratory-tested treatments and hoped they would work. PTPB will give therapists and doctors the information they need to develop more effective treatments for teens and children. To read more about PTPB visit VUCast.
