What do the numbers say?
Since 2004, 10,000 hours of psychotherapy have been measured over 550 patients in treatment with Renton Counseling Center.
The practice utilizes a client feedback program for improving treatment outcomes for adults who participate in our interventions. Integrated into each individual session are two brief scales that measure predictors of therapeutic success. This is "Feedback-Informed-Treatment'' listed on SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence based programs and practices. Here are some of my results from counseling visits:
Patient Overall Satisfaction
Satisfaction with life at start of treatment and at end of treatment over 3.5 years period, 189 patients, 2890 sessions.
1115 Sessions from 2014 & 2015 - Scores are rated from 0 (unsatisfied) to 10 (completely satisfied)
3.5 Years, 189 Patients. Graph shows starting well being, ending well being and average amount of sessions to see significant improvement.
This chart shows what was the starting rating of personal well-being (ORS) and the ending score of personal well-being for each presenting problem along with the average number of sessions it took to get better and how many total sessions per problem.
Example: An individual who has been diagnosed with bipolar by a psychiatrist rated themselves on an average of 4.6 on a 10 point scale at the start of treatment. After an average of 38 visits, the patient's score consistently remained at 7.5 on a 10 point scale, and the treatment ended.
