The Evaluation Center@HSRI.
This is a compilation of unedited messages from the OUTCMTEN list that were received between September 2, 1999 and September 16, 1999. This discussion focused on how to overcome therapist resistance to outcome measurement. The original author asked if therapists might be less resistant if outcome measures were a) truly useful to therapists in treating individual patients and b) actually helped improve their outcomes.
