Evaluating Outcomesby John D. Cone
Synopses & Reviews
One of the major challenges that therapists face is the increasing demand for accountability from third-party payers and consumers. This book is here to help, providing psychologists and related service providers with real-world methods to measure and prove therapeutic effectiveness. The author maintains that the same logic that drives the application of psychology can be integrated into the evaluation of ongoing treatment. This book will be useful for both experienced therapists and students in research methodology, professional practice, and outcomes assessment.
Book News Annotation:
Applying the methods used in controlled experiments, Cone outlines in a detailed and practical format methods for evaluating outcomes in the psychology practice setting. The format may be applied to services that work with individual clients, families, groups, or organizations. Cone (clinical psychology, United States International U., San Diego, CA) provides a wealth of information that will help guide the graduate student through the process of evaluation, examining the different types of change clients are likely to go through during an intervention, the kinds of data collected, the use of integrity checks to ensure quality, how to plan an analysis, among other topics.
