Description: Self-Management is a highly effective yet significantly underutilized evidence-based practice.  It is one of only two of the 24 evidence-based practices (EBP) identified by the National Professional Development Center (NPDC) that crosses every domain and age level. In his article, “Don’t Forget about Self-Management,” Steve Buckmann states, “By learning self-management techniques, individuals can become more self-directed and less dependent on continuous supervision. Instead of teaching situation specific behaviors, self-management teaches a general skill that can be used in an unlimited number of environments.” Visit the Self-Management page for more information.
