This blog focuses on discussion regarding the course NP0018 Becoming a Smarter Therapist.

NP0018, Smarter Therapist, Session 5, Robbie Babins-Wagner


Discover how to solicit, hear, and effectively use negative feedback from clients to enhance treatment and understand how to use outcome measures to develop mastery within specific domains. Robbie Babins-Wagner, who implemented Feedback Informed Treatment at the Calgary Counselling Center in Alberta, Canada, will illustrate how you can create a work environment that supports this kind of practice.

We invite you to take a few minutes after this session to comment on what you’ve learned from this presentation, and from the course as a whole. Does your practice currently support a kind of Feedback Informed Treatment? If not, would you be interested in implementing this kind of practice? What questions do you have? As always, if you ever have any technical issues, just email support@psychotherapynetworker.org for help!

    It was great to learn from this session, specifically the concept of using "feedback" technique as a form of treatment and exploring it and applying it to the fullest was best and worth implementing. It is partly self-supervision/examination. Thank you for sharing this concept.

    Warm regards to both Rich Sir & Robbie Ma'am.

    This session reinforced and validated the usefulness of measurement tools to improve practice performance and outcome. For some clinicians the use of measurement based evaluations can be daunting. The speaker helped to explore many of the counseling mysteries that keep us fearful of making mistakes and perhaps in the dark about our own effectiveness. Thank you!

    What a generous wealth of material Robbie presented here. Thank you! This approach feels very respectful of the clients, and of the humanness of us therapists. Rich, yes, these measurements and scales can take us out of the tance of 'aren't we so loving this owrk together' and get ON with the work. I imagine these tools also keep the boundaries really clear - I am here offering my best service and you are the customer helping me deliver and both growing in the process.

    Since the Supershrink Networker edition I have been more consious of checking with clients before and after each session, and that feels good. I forget it might surprise them, and it does both surprise and validate. I need to take time to explore these measuring tools and become familiar and comfortable with them, and perhaps use my supervision group to help me reflect on the feedback. So - there's a goal I'm setting myself from this talk and this series. Again, thank you.
