Lunch 'n' Learn Webinar: Bringing Caregivers and Youth into the Treatment Planning Process: Shared Decision-Making and Youth Psychotherapy


Planning a treatment that is responsive to client characteristics, preferences and goals is a key element of evidence-based practice, but can be very challenging to implement. In this seminar, Dr. Langer will review the theoretical underpinnings of shared decision-making and discuss how to incorporate shared decision-making into one’s practice.

Dr. Langer developed the CHOICES model for shared decision-making in youth and family psychotherapy. He earned the prestigious Early Career Development Award from APA, in part, based on this cutting edge innovation.


Biography: Dr. David Langer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Suffolk University, and an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Boston University. Dr. Langer’s research explores the efficacy and effectiveness of psychosocial treatments for youth psychopathology, the processes through which psychosocial treatments work, and the applicability of the research literature to non-research clinical settings. He is currently working on developing novel approaches to personalize psychosocial treatments for youth by supporting active collaboration between clinicians and families throughout the treatment planning process (i.e., shared decision-making). Dr. Langer’s research has been funded by the National Institute of Mental Health and his work has been published in prestigious peer-reviewed journals and presented at national and international research conferences.

Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will describe the shared decision-making model of treatment planning.
    2. Participants will explain how this model can be applied to psychosocial treatment approaches.
    3. Participants will discuss ways in which the shared decision-making model can be adapted to youth treatments.
