Training caregivers in evidence-based practices is a significant and ongoing service need. Behavioral Skills Training (BST) is a package consisting of instruction, modeling, rehearsal and feedback that is robustly effective across skills and trainees. Research has moved beyond the simple question of whether BST works to more substantive and practically significant questions such as addressing complex decision-making skills, how to make BST more efficient, and how to implement BST system-wide. This presentation reviews research in this area, identifies limitation in this work, including limitations in caregiver training, and identified areas for future research.
