Psychotherapy -- Evaluation
A belief shared by all members of the research team was that evaluation is a tool that can be used to improve the effectiveness of clinical practice. Prompted by this interest, a research project was designed to gather descriptive data about evaluation in the private sector. The research question reads:
To what extent and in what way are licensed clinical psychologists and clinical MSW's in the private sector involved in evaluating their practice?
a. Are these clinicians using formative and/or summative evaluation?
b. What techniques and/or mental processes do they use?
