Who can count the "new and improved" therapy approaches that have emerged in the past 100 years? Yet, evidence indicates that psychotherapy is no more effective today than it was in Freud's day. This course presents specific techniques to gather and use ongoing client feedback, which have already been shown to dramatically improve treatment outcomes by as much as 65 percent. You'll learn how to make use of structured client feedback throughout the therapy process to increase the likelihood of success, even in cases most at risk for failure.
