Dateline: February 2, 2011
Location: Anchorage, AK
Greetings from Anchorage, Alaska where I’ve been traveling and teaching about feedback-informed treatment (FIT). On Monday, I worked with dedicated behavioral health professionals living and working in Barrow–the northern most point in the United States. FIT has literally reached the “top of the world.” How incredible is that?
Here I am pictured in front of a sign which locals told me would prove I’d made the long journey to the village of 5,000. I look forward to returning soon to help the group with the “nuts and bolts” of implementing FIT across various behavioral health services–practitoners were keen to get started.
As I’ve crisscrossed the state, I’ve been proud to share the growing evidence-base for feedback informed work. Below, the data is summarized in a free, downloadable PDF file, “Measures and Feedback,” which has been updated to include the latest research using the ORS and SRS to improve the quality and outcome of treatment. If you accessed this file back in 2010, be sure to get this updated version.
