How do therapists know they are making a difference with their clients? Progress monitoring and outcome assessment (PMOA) measures are powerful tools that can provide feedback about short-term progress during counseling and psychotherapy as well as information about the overall amount ofprogress. Incorporating Progress Monitoring and Outcome Assessment into Counseling and Psychotherapy by Scott T. Meier helps clinicians, students, and researchers learn how to employ and interpret PMOA measures. A new generation of change-sensitive measures has begun to appear that are specially designed tofunction as PMOA tests. These instruments indicate when a client is not making progress and the mental health professional should consider altering the psychosocial intervention. Research has demonstrated that PMOA measures have the potential to significantly reduce the surprisingly high failurerates found in psychotherapy. Meier describes case studies that incorporate PMOA data, literature relevant to PMOA measurement, and examples of rater training for PMOA measures. Chapters explain how to administer and interpret PMOA data, evaluate the psychometric properties of PMOA measures, understand statistics and graphicsemployed with PMOA data, and employ PMOA data in supervision. This book will be valuable to mental health providers who use PMOA measures as well as graduate students in clinical, counseling, and school psychology.

"This book is essential reading for clinical practitioners and helping professionals. Why? Not only because Scott Meier writes with great precision and logic, or because the book is immensely practical; the real gift of this book is that it builds a long-needed bridge between clinical researchand everyday clinical practice. No matter what your professional discipline may be, this book will help you do what we all need to do: successfully obtain crucial feedback from clients and consumers." --John Sommers-Flanagan, PhD, Professor of Counselor Education, University of Montana, and author of Counseling and Psychotherapy Theories in Context and Practice
