ICCE Training

Agencies that are interested in training their staff in the practice of Feedback Informed Treatment can schedule on-site training with an ICCE trainer/consultant. Introductory and advanced trainings will orient participants to the fundamentals of using outcome and alliance measures in their work and engendering a responsive practice that maintains fidelity to clients...not a particular model. Trainings are experiential and interactive, focus on developing a reflexive, deliberate practice, and provide substantial opportunities for practice with the ORS and SRS. In this video Julie Tilsen, ICCE Training Coordinator introduces the ICCE training and consulting options and below you will find further description of training and consulting together with a list of ICCE Community Trainers.


Online Consultation

The ICCE offers online consultation service to individual clinicians and smaller groups of clinicians. The Consultations will be done by an ICCE Community Trainer. All ICCE Community Trainers are thoroughly grounded in Feedback-Informed Treatment and CDOI. The consultation is offered via Skype or on phone. Online consultation can support clinicians in the following areas:

  1. Consultation on non-progressing cases
  2. Making sense of data, consultation aimed at understanding the aggregate data and identifying patterns for improvement
  3. Consultations focusing on the use of the measures (for beginners). How to talk about the measures, how to talk about the ORS-graph and the SRS, etc.
  4. Consultation focusing on a specific part of the theoretical and research foundation supporting the use of ongoing feedback.
