Nate Williams is a second year student in the Ph.D. program in Social Work. Nate’s most recent scholarly achievement is his submission of an NIMH F-31 grant, which was funded. The title of this grant was Understanding the impact of organizational implementation strategies on EBT (Evidence-based treatment) use. Nate is involved in research studying the implementation of evidence-based interventions for mental health problems into communities, and in particular the effects of organizational factors on the implementation of these interventions. Nate has been a very productive scholar since entering the doctoral program in August of 2011. In his less than two years in the program Nate has been the senior author on two peer-reviewed journal articles:
- Williams, N. J., & Sherr, M. E. (in press). Oh how I try to use evidence in my social work practice: Efforts, successes, frustrations, and questions. Journal of Evidence-Based Social Work.
- Williams, N. J., & Green, P. (in press). Reliability and validity of a treatment adherence measure for child psychiatric rehabilitation. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal.
He has also been a co-author on two other peer reviewed journal articles:
