MATCH Training

Monday, September 13, 2021 - 9:00am to Friday, September 17, 2021 - 4:00pm


The MATCH Intervention

The Modular Approach to Therapy for Children with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or Conduct Problems (MATCH), is an evidence-based counseling program for children and teenagers, ages 6-15, and their families. Unlike most specific counseling programs, which focus on a single problem (e.g., anxiety only), MATCH is designed for multiple problems related to anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and disruptive conduct, including conduct problems associated with ADHD. The MATCH program can give children and families a specific set of scientifically proven tools to help manage these problems that come up at home, at school, or with friends. Therapists who use MATCH have specialized strategies to customize each treatment to each family.

Learning Objectives

• Describe the 6 key concepts of the MATCH treatment approach and how they can be adapted to individual children and families.
• Summarize the empirical evidence supporting the use of MATCH for children with anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, or conduct problems.
• Identify the appropriate treatment protocols to use for individuals presenting with anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, or conduct problems.
• Describe the 7 MATCH resources for the treatment of anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, and conduct problems.
• Demonstrate at least 5 MATCH skill applications in role-playing activities with instructor feedback, as measured by the MATCH module checklists.
• Describe the manner in which MATCH may be adapted to address at least 3 issues of individual and cultural diversity
• Identify at least 4 benefits of utilizing a monitoring and feedback system in the application of the MATCH approach.
