Routinely monitoring patient progress during therapy is an important part of evidence-based practice in mental health (APA Presidential Task Force on Evidence-Based Practice, 2006).What is measuring progress and effectiveness?
Measuring progress, effectiveness, and outcomes also helps determine when therapy is done, i.e., when a person has achieved what they wanted from therapy and the treatment can end.Can I track my therapy progress and outcomes?
It does not let you know whether therapy will help you specifically. This is where measuring therapy progress and outcomes while you are engaged in therapy can be helpful. In recent years tracking progress for individuals in therapy has started to become more commonplace, but it is by no means a standard practice.Should we monitor treatment progress and provide feedback?
Monitoring treatment progress and providing feedback is viewed favorably but rarely used in practice. Administration and Policy in Mental Health and Mental Health Services Research, 45(1), 48–61. http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10488-016-0763-0.
