Psychotherapy Networker Magazine;Nov/Dec2007, Vol. 31 Issue 6, p42
The article discusses the Outcome Rating Scale (ORS) and Session Rating Scale (SRS) in psychotherapy. ORS and SRS are evidence-based practices which have been proven to be of great help even to difficult patients. It involves scoring and evaluation of the therapist and the therapy itself towards the improvement of treatment sessions. The author believes that using the ORS and SRS allows therapists to strive for excellence and track results for difficult clients.
