FIT and outcome measurement are NOT therapy methods. No matter how often I say this to people, it is hard for psychologists to grasp the difference as most of our training and CPD is all about therapy models and methods.
It was not what outcome measurement taught me so much as how do I get my supervisees and staff in my practice to implement it?
