A Consumer's Guide to Therapy
There is a bit of statistics here, I know sorry, but I hope that this brief “Guide for Consumers” will help you to locate helping professionals that will be of the upmost support for you and your family. I will also email the Full PDF to you directly when you submit your email below.
Why should I care about this as the Consumer?
Remember the Seinfeld episode when Elaine is trying to get her medical chart from her doctor because the doctor had written negatively about her? As the consumer of therapeutic services you are not only the "patient" but an active participant: you and your therapist are equally important. By collecting feedback therapists help more people. Research has found that feedback-informed therapists more than doubles the effectiveness of therapy with evidence from thousands of cases! So why should you be left in the dark? Also, outcomes hold us therapists accountable!
Is therapy effective?
The effectiveness of therapy has been researched extensively for the last 50 years finding that the average person engaged with a therapist is better off than 80% who don’t. Scientifically speaking, seeing a therapist is an incredibly effective way to relieve psychological symptoms and distress no matter your age, sex, diagnosis, or culture.
