Practitioner Advisory Council (PRAC) for

Training in Evidence-Based Behavioral Practice

The Practitioner Advisory Council (PRAC) is comprised of two sub-groups. One group includes expert clinicians who work with individuals, while the other includes public health experts who work with communities or populations. Members of the PRAC co-author EBBP modules on the needs and barriers faced by practitioners trying to engage in shared decision-making to support evidence-based practice.
