Normalized patients in clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy: A scoping review of barriers and facilitators for implementation.
A study of significant obstacles to clinical psychology's translational research results in the presentation of a new paradigm and a discussion of potential remedies. In order to establish the causality of psychopathological mechanisms, experimental psychopathology research should be given more attention. Other recommendations include a more systematic structural integration of basic and applied clinical psychology research, a stronger emphasis on mechanisms of change and moderators of clinical interventions, increased attention to clinical subgroups, and emphasizing improvements to current intervention methods. Improvement of clinical practice (e.g., By creating new interventions or increasing their effectiveness) based on a better comprehension of the fundamental mechanisms underlying psychopathology is a core objective of basic research in clinical psychology.Author(s): Paul Gilbert*
