Deliberate Practice

Free Resource Reveals the True Path to Better Results

Humility!

Turns out it’s more than just a common quality of highly effective therapists, humility is actually a prerequisite!

Studies confirm “professional self-doubt” is not only a strong predictor of both alliance and outcome but actually a prerequisite for acquiring therapeutic expertise. Speaking specifically to the field of psychotherapy in, Humility: The paradoxical foundation for psychotherapy expertise, the authors, Hook, Watkins, Davis, and Owen , define humility as “valuing input from the other (or client) … and [a] willingness to engage in self-scrutiny.”

Does this sound like you?

We all profess humility and I know as an ethics bound professional that you already ask for feedback and have likely already encountered some negative feedback from a client. When you have received negative feedback about treatment progress or experienced a rupture in the therapeutic alliance, ask your self how ofter you were able to:

1: Fix the problem?

2: Learn from the feedback and apply it in future encounters?

Did you confidently answer yes, all the time to both questions, because this is the path your colleagues are taking to go from average to excellent. Only you know how far down this journey you have gone, or are willing to go, but what I do know is that both MyOutcomes® and The International Center for Clinical Excellence (ICCE) are dedicated to providing you with the tools and training you need to see noticeable improvements in treatment results.

What Makes a Super Shrink?

Thanks to the seminal work of K. Anders Ericsson, and growing body of FIT Deliberate Practice research, we know it’s not just ‘good genes’ or the ‘right’ therapeutic model that make the difference, it’s effort spent in a reflective practice of looking for ways to improve performance.

Over the years, I know MyOutcomes different dashboard reporting parameters and graphical representations have contributed to the identification of growth areas and provided incremental measures of micro improvements in performance for many…we help create super shrinks.

If you have never had the opportunity to have all of your client sessions tracked and reported for you in real time, you may not understand how quickly MyOutcomes data can help you gain insights into client progress and treatment outcomes.

To help you imagine how the MyOutcomes experience can help track and improve treatment outcomes, we have populated a read-only account with made up cases. You can gain instant access for free. Try out the tools others are using to power their quality improvement initiatives and meet accountability requirements.

Better Results: Using Deliberate Practice to Improve Therapeutic Effectiveness

It’s been a long time now since Michael Lambert first said, “Let’s just measure them. Let’s find out. Who cares what model you use? Let’s make sure that the client is engaged by it and that it’s helping them.”

At the time that was,…and for many still is, a revolutionary concept. More than 20 years later, Michael’s ideas have become much more mainstream, but in my opinion there is still much work to do.

The departure from the field’s reliance on evidence-based practices that offer a medical model best fit, needs to evolve into a client best fit model. Scott Miller has definitely emerged as one of the main researchers successfully pushing these ideas forward. He has played a major role in the development of the Outcome and Session Rating Scales (ORS &SRS), Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) and now FIT Deliberate Practice.

In a recent online meet up, Scott talked about how this shift from a medical model best fit, needs to occur if we are ever going to move beyond measuring and reporting and begin making meaningful use of  data in every day clinical practice. It’s amazing how much you can learn from Scott, watch this short clip to see what I mean…

Better Results with Scott D. Miller Live Meet Up-Part Two

 

This meet up was part of a free online training initiative MyOutcomes developed to promote the May 26th, 2020 release of Better Results: Using Deliberate Practice to Improve Therapeutic Effectiveness. 
This step-by-step guide to deliberate practice is the cumulation of the works of the books authors, Scott Miller, Mark Hubble, Daryl Chow and others at the International Center for Clinical Excellence (ICCE). They have been actively researching the practice patterns of top performing therapists since 2004. In the book they demonstrate how to collect and use client outcome data to create an individualized professional development plan. Not since Feedback-Informed Treatment in Clinical Practice: Reaching for Clinical Excellence, has there been so much excitement and anticipation over the release of a Psychotherapy How to book.

The Better Results training series Scott mentions in the video was developed to serve as a primer and help bring practitioners unfamiliar with the Outcome and Session Rating Scales (ORS & SRS), Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) and FIT Deliberate Practice up to speed. We will be offering the training series again in June, but here is a free preview.
