Making Therapy Better: Using Measurement-Based Care to Improve Outcomes
Measurement-Based Care (MBC) is a transtheoretical approach to psychotherapy that involves assessing patient progress and therapy processes throughout the course of treatment to improve the quality of the service being delivered. Research shows that MBC improves outcomes, especially for cases that are identified as having a high risk of failure. Join world-renowned clinician/researcher Bruce Wampold, PhD, recipient of the American Psychological Association’s Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Applied research and co-author of the classic text The Great Psychotherapy Debate, as he reviews the evidence for MBC and discusses how to integrate MBC with your practice, ensuring that the focus of treatment is on patient progress, and creating a therapeutic climate where difficult issues can be discussed. Dr. Wampold will also provide visual examples of MBC data and walk participants through how to read patient progress graphs and make best use of the information collected through assessments.
