A special focus of Psychiatric Services this year is on implementing evidence-based practices in the treatment of persons with severe mental illness. In this issue Lisa Dixon, M.D., M.P.H., and her colleagues continue the series with an article on family psychoeducation, a service rarely offered in treatment settings but that evidence indicates is effective in reducing relapse and rehospitalization. These authors describe strategies to overcome barriers to implementation of family psychoeducation (see page 903). In a research study on family services, William R. McFarlane, M.D., and his coauthors examined initiatives in Maine and Illinois to disseminate family psychoeducation programs. They found that attitudes of clinicians and administrators were key elements in successful implementation; consensus building and adequate funding were also critical (see page 935). Finally, Dr. Dixon and her coworkers interviewed 37 family members who participated in an established psychoeducation program and found that even six months after the program ended, the family members felt less displeasure and worry about their ill relative (see page 965).
