Commentary: Advancing Mental Health Science and Practice Through Authentic Collaboration

pp. 53—56

As the article by Fantuzzo, McWayne,and Bulotsky (2003) indicates, it increasingly is recognized that research in the mental health field must include enhanced efforts to conduct work outside the laboratory and in collaboration with major stakeholders (e.g., Kazdin,2000; Weisz, Huey, & Weersing, 1998). However,the full implications of bringing the rigor of the scientific method into the relatively unpredictable and uncontrollable circumstances found in the “real world” are only beginning to be appreciated.
