Despite overall efficacy, many clients drop out or do not benefit, therapists vary in success rates and don’t have a clue about their effectiveness. Twelve Randomized Clinical Trials (RCTs) suggest a solution: client feedback, the monitoring of client perceptions of progress, and the alliance throughout therapy. With this, clinicians and clients have an opportunity to shift focus, re-visit goals, alter interventions, and improve outcomes. This introductory workshop, via lecture, video example, role play, and discussion, provides all that is needed to use feedback with your next client.
Learning Objectives
1. Identify the problems inherent in the delivery of psychotherapy services.
2. Identify how systematic client feedback addresses these problems by identifying clients who are not responding to treatment as usual, enabling different directions to be charted.
3. Identify how systematic client feedback engages the most potent factor of success, the client, and specifically addresses and enhances the therapeutic alliance.
4. Detail the empirical support for systematic feedback, including the research for Lambert's OQ System and PCOMS.
5. Demonstrate the ability to introduce the Outcome Rating Scale (ORS) to convey that the purpose is to center the client's perspective about all decisions that affect care as well as to collaboratively use it in each session to measure the benefit of services.
6. Demonstrate the ability to integrate the ORS by ensuring that it represents the client's experience and the reasons for service.
7. Demonstrate the ability to inform treatment based on client response and engage clients in conversation about what can done differently if there is no change.
