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 of progress. 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 to function 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 failure rates 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 graphics
employed 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
