Evidence-based practice relies on more than just theoretical prowess and a gut feeling.
Evidence-based practice relies on more than just theoretical prowess and the gut feelings of the mental health professional, although these are critical factors that determine how good a counselor can be. Studies have proven that evidence-based practices, such as Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT), increase the chances of a client experiencing meaningful improvement by more than two-and-a-half times when the therapist/counselor uses FIT measures such as SRS and ORS.
The tools, through analysis by the therapist/counselor, benefit both parties involved. The SRS and ORS tools have made it easier than ever to get instant feedback, track measures real-time, and thereby allow the therapist/counselor to gauge progress. It lets the therapist/counselor choose the best method possible for a particular client, allowing for customized treatment. Since there is no one-size-fits-all, every client’s mental make-up, circumstances, resilience and emotional intelligence is different, and so the treatment accorded too should be unique to the case. MyOutcomes’ SRS and ORS tools can be administered in less than a minute making it simple to incorporate it in a clinician’s daily therapeutic practice.
More than a dozen randomized controlled trials across a range of settings, including public behavioral health, have provided strong empirical support for the adoption of routine outcomes monitoring in clinical practice. A meaningful outcome and session rating process has been repeatedly demonstrated to improve the quality and efficiency of services in peer-reviewed published studies. MyOutcomes’ SRS and ORS tools integrate science and technology to improve the therapeutic alliance between therapist/counselor and client.
These tools track key factors known to influence all psychotherapeutic treatment outcomes.
The data reported by MyOutcomes’ SRS and ORS are used to strengthen client engagement, increase successful outcomes, reduce dropouts and shorten wait lists. The ORS focuses on client experience; it ensures that the client’s voice remains central and that the client is a collaborator rather than a passive recipient of treatment.
MyOutcomes is rapidly becoming the standard by which mental health professionals track clients’ progress to ensure a more successful therapeutic experience for all. In fact, MyOutcomes is the only outcome and session rating system ever included in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
