A practical guide for selecting and utilizing outcome assessment measures

Expert advice includes case examples, callout boxes, and "Test Yourself" questions

Conveniently formatted for rapid reference

Use outcome measures to ensure productive treatment for clients

Essentials of Outcome Assessment provides crucial information about selecting and administering outcome assessment measures, collecting and interpreting data, and using outcome information in practice. It narrows in on the most useful strategies and techniques, offering practical, down-to-earth advice on using outcome assessment data to develop the treatment plan, track progress for the individual client, evaluate therapists, enhance clinical supervision, and conduct program evaluation.

Choosing the appropriate outcome assessment measure to monitor a client’s treatment progress can be complicated, as dozens of outcome measures exist. Professionals need an authoritative resource to guide them through the broad variety of possibilities–and to help them ensure third-party payment for services rendered. Written by the leading outcome assessment authorities, Essentials of Outcome Assessment offers expert instruction in selecting the appropriate instrument and the training needed to use it.

As part of the Essentials of Mental Health Practice series, this book provides the information mental health professionals need to practice knowledgeably, efficiently, and ethically in today’s behavioral health environment. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as "Test Yourself" questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.
