Somatic Experiencing Research Funding Online Discussion - 7/1/13

  1. 1. Somatic Experiencing Research Funding Future Directions Moderated by: Michael Changaris, PsyD Se Coalition Research Funding Chair
  2. 2. Along with walking the walk… Dr. Kabbat-Zinn did research. Because of his research MBSR is practiced in clinics around the world… More importantly People Who have never heard his name know meditation works!
  3. 3. DBT is practiced world wide! It incorporates mindfulness practices, emotional regulation and meditation to work with people who have been failed by all other treatments! The reason we know her name is her research.
  4. 4. Research Orients Us • Three Basic Questions for Research – Does it work? • Measure symptoms before (pre-test) • Measure symptoms after (post-test) – Is your intervention why it works? • Control group – Having a group that does not get the treatment that gets a pre test and a post test helps to prove that the intervention is what creates change! • Other things that help – randomized to treatment groups, researchers are ‘blind’ to which group is the research group, matched control group. – Who does it work for? • Choose the population (group to measure) e.g. people with Motor vehicle accidents who have whip lash. • Other things to consider: How did you take your sample? Was is random or convenience? • All of the methods of research are set up to answer these questions!
  5. 5. Research Basics • Quantitative Research: Uses standardized ways of measuring change that can be put into numbers. • Why to Make a Quantitative Study? – Can demonstrate a cause and effect relationship between at treatment and improvement. – To generate testable ideas for quantitative. • Types of Quantitative – Pre and post Test – Pre and post with a control group. – Gold Standard: Double blind, randomized, placebo controlled study. • Qualitative Research: Looks at individual experiences. It is good for understanding but it does not establish a treatment as evidenced based. • Why to Make a Qualitative Study? – Understand a type of event that is rare, extremely complex or not understood. – To generate testable ideas for quantitative. – Does not establish causality. • Types of Qualitative – Case Study – Grounded Theory – Phenomenology
  6. 6. Types of Funding for Research • Government Grants – SAMSA (substance abuse), NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health), NIH (National Institute of Health). • Private Foundations – e.g. Spensor Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. • Crowd Sourcing – Kickstarter, Indigogo etc. • Self-Funded – Choose cheep measures and keep the budget tight!
  7. 7. Grants – Private Foundations • Look for grants that match your program objectives. • Orient yourself to requirements! • Be mindful of deadlines. • Know the granting agency… If you know them you can tailor the proposal to third needs
  8. 8.

  9. 9. Letter of Intent • Your first contact should be to find out about the grant. • Your second contact is a letter of inquiry. This is a condensed version of your whole proposal. • Letter of Intent Includes – A Summery Statement – Statement of need – Project description – The Outcomes Will You Measure – Organizational background – Your Credentials – Budget – A Closing Statement
  10. 10. Budget • Time the budget covers • Resources – Person power e.g. core staff, assistance, field workers. • Research expenses: printing, tests, measurements etc. • Meetings and Consultations. • Report printing and development. • Equipment – Computer, settings, Data Analysis. • Facility Needs e.g. rent, water electric.
  11. 11. Proposal Sections - Foundations 1. Summary - The summary is a slimmed down version of the entire proposal. It provides a quick overview of the project and its significance. It should be about 250–500 words, and use about one sentence each to address the problem, objectives and methods. 2. Introduction - Describe your organization in this section, focusing on qualifications, history, and experience. 3. Statement of Need - Describe the problem that your constituency faces, cite statistical and demographic detail related to the problem and clearly state the need your project will address. 4. Objectives - Explain the goals of your project and the expected impact it will have on your constituency. Be certain that your objectives are measurable, or indicate how progress towards these objectives will be monitored.
  12. 12. Proposal Sections - Foundations 4. Methods - Clearly describe how you are going to accomplish the objectives of the program. This is the core of your project. How will the project be implemented? What are the specific details? 5. Evaluation - What quantifiable methods will measure the success of your program? How will this information be reported to the grantor? How frequently will progress be checked? 6. Budget - Clearly itemize and detail the costs of your project. Break your budget into subcategories so that your reader can understand it in a single glance.
