"In this interview, Dr. Scott Miller discusses evidenced-based psychotherapy and outcome-informed measures. Miller argues that the therapeutic alliance is one of therapy's most important elements, and that the therapist, not the treatment model, is the determining factor. This means that therapists can learn, grow, and be more effective with their clients by systematically monitoring therapy outcomes, inviting negative feedback, and asking the simple question, "How is this working for you?" Miller warns against manualized systems that require therapists to narrowly work in a particular model, citing research that shows that therapists are the most effective when they are allowed to practice what they believe and are confident in. You will learn ways to adapt Miller's tools to invite client feedback, no matter the modality. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
