Therapists do really want to get better at what they do. Professional development is both a deeply held value and a career long aspiration. It is also central to lifelong job satisfaction. Unfortunately, traditional approaches (e.g., lectures, clinical experience, even supervision) don’t work; it doesn’t get us any better in our craft. Gleaning from studies the team at ICCE and I have conducted on studying highly effective therapists (aka Supershrinks), the workshop focuses on helping practitioners develop a personalised system to as much as double the effectiveness of treatment while simultaneously reducing costs, drop-out rates and deterioration.
In a Nutshell, Why Adopt a Trans-theoretical FIT Approach?
The aims of the workshop are focused on the tangibles. Things we can do now to change the course of your future. It’s not set out to change your therapeutic orientation or allegiance to any models, rather, it’s solely designed to give you a structure to get better at what you do, improving one therapist at a time, helping one client at a time.
Here are the three aims:

Agencies and practitioners across the globe are now beginning to realise the potential of implementing routine outcomes monitoring (ROM) in their service deliveries (Miller, Hubble, Chow, Seidel, 2015). It is well-established that ROM doubles the “effect size” (reliable and clinically significant change), cuts dropout rates by as much as half, and reduces deterioration by 33%. (Miller, Bargmann, Chow, Seidel, & Maeschalck, 2015; Miller, Hubble, Chow Seidel, 2013). However, most clinicians and administrators have not yet found a way to integrate the use of clinical data and clinical intuition in a systematic step-wise sequence. This requires a synergistic micro-to-macro symbiotic process of integrating outcomes “one client at a time,” “one therapist at a time,” and “one agency at a time”.
In a Nutshell, Why Do We Need to Go Beyond Measuring Outcomes?
The aims of the workshop are focused on the tangibles. This workshop builds on the previous introductory workshop, Feedback Informed Treatment (FIT): Three Steps to Becoming Your Personal Best in Psychotherapy.
