Clearly, researchers can learn much from testing their ideas in real-world settings. And so, too, can researchers benefit from clinicians' reports of what works in their practices.

With that outlook, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) built a bridge between research and practice by establishing the Clinical Trials Network (CTN) in October 1999. The program partners 14 regional research centers, or nodes, with 85 community treatment programs nationwide to test research-based approaches to drug abuse in real-world clinical settings.

Psychologists and other health professionals nationwide submitted protocols for drug abuse treatment studies to the CTN Steering Committee, which chose seven initial protocols using three criteria: scientific evidence of efficacy, ease of implementation and potential to improve public health.

The laboratory experiment is traditionally considered the “gold standard” in psychology research. This is because only laboratory experiments can clearly separate cause from effect and therefore establish causality. Despite this unique strength, it is also clear that a scientific field that is mainly based on controlled laboratory studies ends up lopsided. Specifically, it accumulates a lot of knowledge on what can happen—under carefully isolated and controlled circumstances—but it has little to say about what actually does happen under the circumstances that people actually encounter in their daily lives.

As one of the founding fathers of social psychology remarked, “Experimentation in the laboratory occurs, socially speaking, on an island quite isolated from the life of society” ( Lewin, 1944 , p. 286). This module highlights the importance of going beyond experimentation and also conducting research outside the laboratory ( Reis & Gosling, 2010 ), directly within participants’ natural environments, and reviews existing methodologies for studying daily life.

Capturing “life as it is lived” has been a strong goal for some researchers for a long time. Wilhelm and his colleagues recently published a comprehensive review of early attempts to systematically document daily life ( Wilhelm, Perrez, & Pawlik, 2012 ). Building onto these original methods, researchers have, over the past decades, developed a broad toolbox for measuring experiences, behavior, and physiology directly in participants’ daily lives ( Mehl & Conner, 2012 ). Figure 1 provides a schematic overview of the methodologies described below.
