Research has shown that across the course of a professional’s career, despite our best intentions, when it comes to getting the best outcomes for clients our effectiveness usually stays the same or gets worse over time. Researchers have investigated what may predict treatment effectiveness in professionals and found that gender, qualifications, professional discipline, years of experience and time spent providing treatment does predict our effectiveness. In fact, to date only one thing has been demonstrated to predict our effectiveness with clients, deliberate practice. Deliberate practice is a strategy used by experts in all fields and describes a systematic way for finding out what is not working for clients, practicing specific skills, adapting our treatment and then achieving better outcomes with clients over time.
