About the Course:

In reviewing research on the effectiveness of behavioral therapy on treatment outcomes, research has shown that attendance at therapy sessions tends to resolve psychological complaints more so than total absence therapy. This course explores the empirical evidence to show that effectiveness of therapists’ work has not become more effective over the past several decades. In the first chapter of this book, the authors describe several areas of improvement in the training of behavioral health practitioners and a model for how behavioral health practitioners can excel to expert levels of clinical practice.

This course is based on the Chapter 1 of the book Introduction to The Cycle of Excellence: Using Deliberate Practice to Improve Supervision and Training created by Tony Rousmaniere, PhD. et al. in 2017.
