Despite overall effectiveness of therapy, dropouts are a problem, many people do not benefit, and therapists significantly vary in effectiveness. In addition, many therapists do not know how effective or not they really are. Nine randomized clinical trials demonstrated that person-based outcome feedback offers a viable solution to these problems by identifying at-risk individuals before they drop out or realize a negative outcome while simultaneously raising the bar of therapist performance. In short, feedback increases positive outcomes.
This presentation provides a no-nonsense discussion of the skills required to get started using feedback to help individuals help you do good work--not sometime next month or even next week, but with the next person you treat. One of the tools you will learn is to replicate a feedback system that will easily give you the ability to see early warning signs of potential problems. This will allow you to identify how to enhance your therapeutic impact with those in therapy. Through the feedback that is attained, you will learn ways to have a healthier conversation that will deepen the collaborative understanding. This will intensify the individual’s resources to bring about greater change. You will also learn how you can use outcome data to improve your outcomes over the course of your career.
