In episode 226 we complete our conversation with Dr. Scott Miller. A psychotherapists and researcher with the International Center for Clinical Excellence. We talk more about what is liked with true clinical development, the Session Rating Scale and Outcome Rating Scale and more. This week on MCF!
Sessions Rating Scale (SRS) and patient complaints
Scott feels that addressing lower ratings by clients on certain SRS aspects and following up with pertinent questions will make the client realize that as a clinician we are making an effort to improve. This effort from the clinician will help improve client compliance with follow up sessions.
Outcome Rating Scale (ORS)
Scott talks about the four questions that make up this scale and administering it at the first and follow up session and comparing the results to determine progress.
Scott and Jason discuss a patient with low back pain with recurring symptoms and eventual activity avoidance and the methods to address the issue from a psychotherapy point of view. He talks about alternative approaches for those patients that do not have a straightforward mechanical resolution or those whose psychosocial aspects might be affecting progress.
