Demonstrating Benefit and Improving Outcomes

A Community of Practice Conversation about Outcome Informed Practices

“How effective am I with clients?” One of those questions that arise from the foundation of our practice. Psychology is built on evidence-based practices. But how often do we apply those to our own skill sets and experiences as a practitioner of psychology?

Since the arrival of COVID-19 this spring, I have been reflecting a lot on my practice.  I completed my Masters and started my provisional hours 20 years ago.  In the last 20 years, I have worked in a variety of areas and taken numerous trainings.  But this spring, I started to wonder about outcomes and effectiveness.  With all these trainings, am I getting better? And, if so, how would I know?  I decided to take on the implementation of Feedback Informed Therapy.  And I was so surprised at the tremendous benefits.

What I did not realize when I took this on was how much I would feel like I needed a local community of practice.  I am reaching out to ask if you would be willing to join myself and Judi Malone in beginning a conversation about how you think about effectiveness in your practice; what tools you use; and how we could create a community of support wherever we are in our journeys.

Interested in what Outcome Informed Treatment (OIP) is? Using Feedback Informed Therapy? Join us for an open conversation about how we can demonstrate benefit, improve outcomes, and establish a community of practice for OIP.
