In this week's Therapy Tip of the Week #7 (TTW), we talk about how to use outcome monitoring tools, not as an assessment tool, but as a conversational tool.

If you have missed the previous videos on how to improve working alliance, here are links:

1. Seek to be Dis-confirmed
2. The Devil is the Details Between Sessions 
3. How to Elicit Nuanced Feedback 

⏳ Time Stamps:
00:00: Introduction
00:40: Not Just an Assessment Tool
01:08: Why Measure at Each Session
02:44: A Clinical Example of Conflicting Ratings

Note: Any personally identifiable information in clinical examples used are changed, in order to protect their confidentiality and privacy.
