Simple strategies for creating more effective psychotherapeutic work, featuring renowned psychologists Drs. Scott Miller and Daryl Chow

Interview-style, with Elizabeth Irias, LMFT

  • Course Description

    Outcomes of psychotherapy have not improved in more than 40 years. Why? Though the time spent in graduate preparation, the amount of pre-licensing supervision, the continuing education hours, and the number of studies documenting the effectiveness have all risen, therapy's effectiveness has remained flat. Only recently have researchers acknowledged this problem and identified a solution. In this podcast, Drs. Scott Miller and Daryl Chow review the research behind therapy outcomes, and provide a roadmap of simple strategies therapists can implement to deliver better results.

Thanks Scott and Daryl! For me, what stood out was the importance of thinking of Deliberate Practice as a verb and not a noun, and that it's an overarching attitude to learning rather than a way of learning a specific technique (CBT, ISTDP, EFT, etc.). The other thing that I found important was the relationship between shame and performance mind as opposed to guilt and learning mind. I'm happy to have taken part of this🙂 Looking forward reading the book👍🌻🤓

I am a clinical psychologist who has been following the issues of therapy outcomes, routine outcome monitoring, and deliberate practice for several years. I can attest to the value (and the pain) associated with actually knowing your outcomes and also to the way that knowledge can feed your desire to learn how to use deliberate practice to improve. These are topics crucial to our field, and you cannot find better guides to exploring and understanding them than Scott Miller and Daryl Chow. The interviewer is also very good, resulting in a very lucid and thought provoking conversation.

"If we embrace our failures, there's an opportunity for learning." Scary given the culture of fear in the workplace when acknowledging professional vulnerabilities (e.g., what I'm not good at). Is it safe enough in the workplace? But if we expect our clients to take risks in sessions when seeking help, shouldn't we as practitioners do the same in our professional development? How can we get better at what we do if we avoid acknowledging our own vulnerabilities, blind-spots and limitations? The "goal" is not only to be a better therapist, but also how to be a better person in general. As Patch Adams said, "You treat a disease (aka. symptom), you win or lose. You treat a person, you'll win no matter what the outcome." The podcast stimulated thought and reflection. Unfortunately supervision has become more of an evaluation of productivity than exploring the person. Thanks.
