      Elizabeth (Betsy) Phillips joined the USC School of Social Work faculty in 2011. She has previously worked with School of Social Work professor John Brekke on a National Institute of Mental Health-funded project concerned with merging research knowledge and practice wisdom. As part of this five-year study, she trained Master of Social Work interns on numerous evidence-based interventions, including motivational interviewing, problem solving therapy, seeking safety, and illness management and recovery. Phillips is also certified to practice interpersonal psychotherapy and errorless learning. Her clinical experience has been with adults with co-occurring disorders in community mental health and residential treatment settings. In her current role as developer and co-leader of evidence-based intervention trainings, she helps to advance the School of Social Work’s plan to teach all MSW students at least two evidence-based interventions by graduation.
