It’s not a pretty picture. Available evidence indicates that the effectiveness of psychotherapy has not improved in spite of 100 years of theorizing and research. What would help? Not learning a new model of therapy or the “latest” so-called “evidence-based” treatment approach. And no, not attending another CEU event or sorting through that stack of research journals by your desk. A simple, valid, and reliable alternative exists for maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of treatment based on using ongoing client feedback to empirically tailor services to the individual client needs and characteristics. Research on the approach conducted at multiple sites across a wide range of clients and present- ing complaints indicates that clinicians can improve the outcomes of those cases most at risk for failure by as much as 65% without having to change their preferred treatment approach or learn any new treatment techniques.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Learn systematic ways to assess the clients’ perceptions of progress and satisfaction so that therapy may be empirically tailored to the individuals’ needs and characteristics.
  2. Learn simple and reliable methods for evaluating process and outcome in treatment.
  3. Learn how to use routine assessment of outcome and alliance to improve the quality and outcome of treatment.
