Feedback Improves Client and Therapist Communication
Many people enter therapy with a specific goal they wish to achieve, such as reducing anxiety or overcoming obsessive compulsive disorder. FIT provides therapists with client information to make necessary adjustments to make treatment more effective. The tracked feedback ensures that the therapist and client are always working towards the same goals.
Goal setting is an important piece of the therapeutic process. Goals help form a direction therapy should go to achieve the desired result. Forming a trusted relationship with a therapist is critical for clients to begin working towards these goals. Feedback helps minimize misunderstandings, and itself can be a reflection of significant growth. The practice of giving constructive feedback can help clients who struggle with discussing vulnerable feelings. Learning to give feedback correctly can also be used outside of treatment to improve other areas of clients’ lives.
One of the most important aspects of any good relationship is communication. Communicating with others is not always easy, and not always about positive things. The ability to deliver constructive feedback improves personal relationships immeasurably. The use of specific feedback helps set boundaries, make expectations clear, build trust, and recover from negative experiences. Learning to effectively deliver feedback is a useful tool that continuously helps clients navigate life successfully.
Feedback Increases the Chances of Continued Therapy
Feedback Gives You Better Treatment Results
Although therapy has been found effective for most people, many people are left unsatisfied with their treatment. We use Feedback Informed Treatment at Palo Alto Therapy to provide an open dialog with clients on how they are doing using a carefully crafted series of questions. Consistent communication offers better results to our clients in the long run. We use this feedback to improve client-therapist communication to reach goals and gain results fast.
Providing feedback to the therapist offers better results than other facilities that do not provide a forum for feedback. An open communication method helps us understand your goals clearly to ensure your therapist is on the same page as you are. Many find that the practice of giving regular feedback benefits other areas of their lives aside from their treatment sessions. We use feedback as a tool to remove social barriers concerning giving feedback and to minimize miscommunications between you and your therapist.
Combining cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and FIT provide a truly unique experience. Our clients see effective results and experience faster gains. Feedback helps us help you achieve and succeed with tools you can use for a lifetime.
