  • Practitioners typically rely on their clinical judgment — often inaccurately — to assess their clients’ change in therapy (Hannan et al, 2005)
  • Clients like to see their progress
  • Utilizing feedback from PM is associated with improved treatment outcomes
  • The use of valid psychometric scales allows providers to blend their clinical intuition with scientific data
  • Using assessments provides not only evidenced-based practice but practice-based evidence
