Are you looking to push your clinical effectiveness to the next level ?

  Dr Daryl Chow is a world leading clinician and researcher into what exactly makes some therapists stand above their peers when it comes to client outcomes.   Benchmark Psychology is proud to sponsor Daryl to present this one off masterclass in Brisbane.  Daryl will share his expertise on the strengths and pitfalls of the routine outcome systems current available, and teach clinicians how to get the best out of them.   However, outcomes are only the tip of the iceberg.  It is virtually impossible for clinicians to improve without outcomes, but there is so much more to becoming a top therapist than simply tracking outcome data.   Daryl was recently nominated for the Most Valuable Paper (MVP) award by American Psychological Association (APA) for the work he and his colleagues have conducted into the importance of deliberative practice in improving outcomes.   Daryl will be sharing his insights in this masterclass forum to help you learn the skills to push your practice to its limits.  Daryl will also be conducting live outcome based supervision with some of the Benchmark Psychology team as a learning demonstration for all participants.  

Why do we need to go beyond measuring outcomes?

 
  • Measuring outcomes alone does not improve performance
  • Clinicians typically fail to utilise the full potential of data to guide their work
  • Most practitioners do not have a clear critical decision making process when outcome signals are seen
  • Focus on outcomes alone does not lead to longer term improvement for clinicians, deliberative practice does
