The systems-contextual approach to training of service providers to deliver evidence-based practices provides a useful framework for considering the broader ecological context within providers’ work, including organizational, training, program design, supervision, and funding variables. Our experience of disseminating on a large scale an evidence-based system of parenting interventions is used to highlight the major organizational, structural, and systemic challenges that need to be addressed to ensure that programs are effectively used within service delivery systems. Solutions to these challenges and implications for policy and practice are discussed.
