The current paper offers four considerations related to Stirman, Crits-Cristoph, and DeReubis' (this issue) insightful review on general theories relevant to the dissemination of psychological interventions and major obstacles associated with the dissemination effort. Readers are asked to consider (a) the notion that the dissemination of a psychological intervention is not equivalent to unidirectional product delivery, (b) the importance of examining local uncontrolled evidence alongside controlled research evidence, (c) design strategies to facilitate adapting evidence-based interventions for community settings, and (d) fostering working partnerships between laboratories and the communities.
