Here is an efficient guide to measuring and graphing behavioral outcomes, and letting the results influence clinical decisions. The authors, all clinical psychologists, describe how the `continuous' measurement of outcomes can document clinical results and provide practical methods for clinicians to routinely get and use credible, precise data. They provide numerous clinical examples that illustrate how behavioral health outcomes can be measured directly and simply.
