Frequently Asked Questions

What is FIT?

 Feedback-Informed Treatment is an evidence-based, pantheoretical approach for evaluating and improving the quality and effectiveness of behavioral health services.  It involves routinely and formally soliciting feedback from consumers
regarding the therapeutic alliance and outcome of care and using the resulting information to inform and tailor service delivery. 

What is Deliberate Practice (DP)?

DP is a highly specialized form of training designed by a coach or teacher aimed at improving specific aspects an individual’s performance through repetition and successive refinement.  It is the only form of professional development shown to improve therapeutic effectiveness.

Why are FIT and DP relevant to me?

Research shows therapists want to improve.  The same body of evidence reveals traditional training (degrees, participation in continuing education, and engagement in ongoing supervision) have little impact on effectiveness.  

How can the International Center for Clinical Excellence help me?

Implementing FIT and DP in your clinical practice or agency are challenging.  The ICCE offers an international community of support, training, certification, and access to clinicians, agency managers, educators, and researchers working in diverse settings around the world.
