How can data science help your therapist?

According to an article a recently published in The Atlantic, data science is the new frontier in psychotherapy. Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) is a system in which client surveys are collected before every therapy session, and provide an independent and private way of determining if a client is improving or deteriorating. Performance feedback and data collection allows therapists to adjust the tools or tone of sessions to provide the best treatment for their client, similar to how performance metrics are used athletics. In addition, statistical algorithms, developed from data on thousands of cases, can predict which patients will deteriorate or are at risk of suicide (often with greater accuracy than a mental health professional), and can alert the psychotherapist.

While not yet widely used, these advances could prove critical for improving a field such as psychotherapy. Progress in psychotherapy is plagued by a lack of performance feedback for psychotherapists because of the private nature of their work, and whitewashing, a term that describes when patients suggest to their psychotherapist that treatment is effective while in reality the patient may actually be deteriorating.

Although studies show that FIT improves the effectiveness of psychotherapy, psychotherapists tend to be resistant to the quantification of something as nuanced and delicate as mental health and interpersonal therapist-client relationships. And granted, system can be improved; developer and researcher Michael Lambert noted that his system only significantly improves therapy outcomes for patients at risk of deterioration.


Like any facet of technology, the more it is used and implemented, the better it will become. The use of data science in psychotherapy is a burgeoning field, and suggests that, as data scientists, we will be able to improve the effectiveness with which professionals can identify and treat mental health problems.

I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative
and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

Now i'm very happy that I found this in my search for something relating to this.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for
aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are
so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
Any ideas?

Ꭼverything posted was very logical. But, think ɑboҝut this, whаt if yoս were to writ a aweѕome headline?

I am not suggesting your information iѕn't good.,
but what if you added a post title to ⲣossibly get people's attention? I mean psychotherapy is kinda vanilla.
You shouⅼd look at Yahoο's front page and see how they create
post titles tto grab viewers interested. Youu migyt trry adding a video
orr a pic οr two to grab readers excited about ԝhat you've written. Just my opinion, іt might mаke your blog a little bit
more interesting. http://www.luogu888.com/comment/html/?133939.html
