Abstract

Computer-based trainings are a promising avenue for increasing access to training in evidence-based practices. However, little is known about whether therapists are willing to use them. Results from a national survey of practicing therapists (N = 1,067) indicated that 26 % of therapists reported previously using a computer-based training and overall attitudes (as measured by the Computer-Based Training Attitudes Scale) were positive. Higher therapist computer fluency and greater openness to new treatments predicted positive attitudes. Therapists with more positive attitudes were more likely to have previously used a computer-based training. Implications are discussed.
