Feedback-informed treatment (FIT) refers to the routine use of assessment data to monitor the experiences and progress of patients during therapy. Assessments are typically used to monitor the patients’ perceptions of the therapeutic alliances and progress in terms of symptom reduction. Feedback regarding symptoms reduction and general outcomes allows clinicians to make informed decisions regarding the efficacy of the interventions used in therapy. The previously discussed research demonstrates the positive impact of clinicians using FIT to enhance psychotherapy. This training will help clinicians understand the theoretical underpinnings of FIT, selection of FIT technologies, and use of FIT to inform treatment. This training is designed to reduce resistance that clinicians may have towards constant feedback regarding their work.
1. Participants will describe the theoretical underpinnings of feedback-informed treatment and the research supporting its use.
2. Participants will recite the various forms of assessments used to implement feedback-informed treatment with different disorders.
3. Participants will demonstrate skill in discussing data and treatment-related issues with patients.
4. Participants will analyze assessment data to make clinical decisions regarding treatment.
