Abstract

Objective: This study examined the feasibility and effectiveness of training clinical staff in enhanced relapse prevention for people with bipolar disorder in routine services. Methods: A cluster randomized controlled trial was conducted in North West England. This brief report focuses on the 56 staff who received enhanced relapse prevention. Staff-perceived skill in working with people with bipolar disorder to prevent relapse was assessed pretraining, posttraining, and postsupervision. Staff ratings of confidence and trainer ratings of competence for key elements of enhanced relapse prevention were made posttraining and postsupervision. Staff gave feedback on training and supervision. Results: Feedback was very positive. Staff's perception of their skill increased after training and increased further after supervision. Most staff felt confident and were rated as competent in key elements of enhanced relapse prevention after training and supervision. Conclusions: An effective training and supervision package was developed. Barriers to implementation need to be addressed. (Psychiatric Services 60: 702-706, 2009)
