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.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a
lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to
help stop content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate
it.

I leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a site
or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. It's
caused by the passion displayed in the article I read.
And after this post psychotherapy. I was actually excited
enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have 2 questions for you
if it's allright. Is it just me or do some of these remarks come
across like written by brain dead visitors? :-P And,
if you are writing at additional sites, I'd like to follow you.

Could you make a list every one of your social pages like
your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

First off I want to say awesome blog! I had
a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before
writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations
or tips? Thanks!
