Better Results:
What can mental health professionals do to enhance their performance? Available evidence makes clear that clear that attending a typical continuing education workshop, specializing in the treatment of a particular problem, or learning a new treatment model does little to improve effectiveness.  In fact, studies to date indicate clinical effectiveness actually declines with time and  

experience in the field. The key to improved performance is engaging in deliberate practice. At this workshop, the latest research on deliberate practice will be translated into concrete steps all clinicians can immediately apply in their efforts to achieve better results.

Educational Objectives:

  • Demonstrate learning of the evidence-base supporting the use of deliberate practice to improve therapeutic effectiveness. 
  • Discuss a valid and reliable method for assessing baseline level of effectiveness. 
  • Discuss a valid and reliable method for identifying performance improvement opportunities unique to each individual practitioner’sclinical practice.
