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.

The Era of Average is Over!

outcomes system softwareAn RCT reporting reliable and clinically significant change instills a high degree of confidence in the results. So why does strictly adhering to a manualized EBP, with multiple published RCT’s in top tier journals, often fail to translate into even noticeable improvements in clinical settings? Experience suggests that the real world is more heterogeneous than the world imagined by RCTs and it can be confusing and disappointing when individuals you are trying to help fail to benefit.

MyOutcomes® is a response to these findings, offering a way to identify when treatment is and is not working with an individual person. Back in 2007, when MyOutcomes first began offering the convenience of digital administration and reporting treatment outcomes, we used a set of mathematic equations that plotted the expected treatment response or ETR of a client based on their Outcome Rating Scale (ORS) score. At the time is was cutting edge, few people were even measuring outcomes let alone trying to provide benchmarks for guiding clinical practice. For the first time therapists and clients had a simple and feasible way to compare outcomes from session to session to the ETR benchmark.

Originally, the ETR plotted the average progress of all clients, since then we have upgraded several times, today offering equations that provide benchmarks for comparing individual progress to both successful and unsuccessful treatment episodes. In MyOutcomes modeling system, predictions are made at the individual level, versus feedback delivered in the form of an Average ETR, providing a far more accurate assessment of reliable and clinically significant change at the individual client level. If your clients are all average than by all means use a Reliable Change Index, if they are not and your EBP has let you down too many times, consider adding a patient-centred measure of treatment effectiveness like MyOutcomes. If you have already been using MyOutcomes and are ready to raise your effectiveness to the next level; Improve your ability to engage, retain, and help a more diverse clientele then consider joining me this March in Chicago for the Advanced FIT Intensive. It will help you develop and sustain a lifelong, professional development plan.

Development Training

FIT Professional Development Training by Dr. Scott Miller

FIT Professional Development Training by Dr. Scott Miller is scheduled from 8th Aug to 9th Aug'16 at Chicago,Illinois. The training venue is located alongside the beautiful “Magnificent Mile,” near Northwestern University Hospital, atop a tall building, overlooking Lake Michigan, and steps from the best retail therapy and blues bars in Chicago!

The training will be run by ICCE Director, Dr. Scott Miller, Ph.D. and Daryl Chow, Ph.D., co-authors of the forthcoming Reach: Pushing Your Clinical Performance to the Next Level by measuring outcomes.

Dr. Scott Miller, PhD, is a co-founder of the Center for Clinical Excellence, an international consortium of clinicians, researchers, and educators dedicated to promoting excellence in behavior health. Dr. Miller conducts workshops and training in the United States and abroad, helping hundreds of agencies and organizations, both public and private, to achieve superior results. He is one of a handful of “invited faculty” whose work, thinking, and research is featured at the prestigious “Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference.”

Daryl Chow, PhD is a Senior Associate and Certified trainer with the International Center for Clinical Excellence. In his home country Singapore, Daryl worked as a senior psychologist in the Institute for Mental Health, Woodbridge Hospital, as well as in the Early Psychosis Intervention Program (EPIP). He provided psychotherapy services for inpatient and outpatient contexts, training, consultations, and clinical supervision. In addition, he spearheaded and collaborated in clinical researches involving psychotherapy outcomes, effects of training clinicians in Difficult Conversations in Therapy (DCT), and voice hearing experiences. (see darylchow.com for list of publications).

Professional development is central to lifelong job satisfaction. Traditional approaches (e.g., lectures, clinical experience, even supervision) don't work. The latest studies show that unlocking one's potential as a therapist requires “deliberate practice.”  Here, cutting edge research will be translated into highly individualized, step-by-step instructions for improving your clinical performance and improving outcomes.   Due to the intensive nature of this training, registration is limited to 20 advanced practitioners. Join this select group of colleagues from around the world for two demanding, yet inspiring days guaranteed to:

    • Raise your effectiveness to the next level by constant feedback;
    • Improve your ability to engage, retain, and help a more diverse clientele by measuring outcomes;
    • Help you develop and sustain a lifelong, professional development plan by implementing psychotherapy tools.

Feedback Informed Treatment in Practice

From Scott Miller's Top Performance Blog

Implementation of Feedback Informed Treatment

Though feedback is imperative to improvement, it is not an end in itself. The idea of feedback is to give direction to a therapist to develop a plan of action for deciding their future professional development and to keep monitoring it to see if it yields results. MyOutcomes®, provides all the features that help therapist do just that and much more. With its ultra brief Outcome and Session Rating Scales (ORS and SRS), and the interactive graphs and reporting functions, the therapist can chart the course of treatment and discover how to be more effective, with more clients, more often

In this recent video, published in Scott Miller's Top Performance Blog, Dr Miller interviews MyOutcomes® VP, Cindy Hansen, accompanied by ICCE Community Manager, Cynthia Maeschalck. Learn what they have to say about how MyOutcomes aids in the development of a feedback informed practice.
