Medaille Professor Set to Embark on Groundbreaking Overseas Study
Nationally recognized behavioral couples therapy (BCT) expert Keith Klostermann, Ph.D., LMFT, LMHC, an assistant professor in Medaille’s master’s in marriage and family therapy program, is part of an international team that has received funding for a groundbreaking multi-year proposal to be conducted in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Entitled “Behavioral Couples Therapy as an Adjunct to Opiod Substitution Therapy for Drug Dependent Patients: A Feasibility Study,” the three-year project also involves investigators from Edinburgh University and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Klostermann will travel to Scotland in November.
“I was approached to serve as a co-investigator on a grant application examining the use of BCT with married or cohabitating substance-abusing clients with children,” Klostermann says. “This study is unique in that it is examining the use of BCT with ‘dual-using’ couples — i.e., both partners use — with children who are also on opioid substitution therapy.”
Dr. Klostermann says the study is part of a larger effort to disseminate BCT across Scotland. He will work with senior Scottish mental health leadership to provide additional therapy training during his fall visit.
“The opportunity to disseminate BCT internationally is very exciting,” he says. “While BCT has been extensively and rigorously studied, the larger obstacle has been dissemination and training others in the approach.”
