Measuring Outcome of Feedback-Informed Treatment: Using PCOMS with Chinese Clients
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feedback effect on treatment outcome and client-therapist relationship and also investigate the effectiveness of PCOMS when it is used as an outcome measure in psychotherapy with Chinese clients. To understand PCOMS in terms of recommended methods of use, outcome, potential benefits, challenges, and limitations, I identify and review existing literature (Bellringer et al., 2019). The review starts with client feedback and feedback-informed treatment research, and then my review gets to four related questions. (1) What evidence is there of PCOMS improving treatment outcome and therapeutic relationship between clients and counsellors? (2) Has the use of PCOMS resulted in any unexpected outcomes for clients or treatment services? (3) How does PCOMS benefit different populations? Is it culturally appropriate for Chinese clients? If so, to what extent it helps Chinese clients. (4) How does PCOMS support counsellors in developing and demonstrating their skills and competencies?
