Pragmatic measures of therapist delivery of evidence-based practice EBP are critical to assessing the impact of large-scale, multiple EBP implementation efforts. As an initial step in the development of pragmatic measurement, the current study examined the concordance between therapist and observer ratings of items assessing delivery of EBP strategies considered essential for common child EBP targets. Possible EBP-, session-, and therapist-levels factors associated with concordance were also explored. Greater therapist-observer concordance was observed in sessions where a structured EBP was delivered and in sessions where therapists reported being able to carry out planned activities. These results can help inform the development of pragmatic therapist-report measures of EBP strategy delivery and implementation efforts more broadly.
