A therapist s most profound responsibility is to choose the right treatment for his or her client. Yet despite extensive training, mental health professionals remain susceptible to biases that influence their decisions and can have a dramatic effect on outcome. This book applies the theory and research of decision analytics to mental health, with a particular focus on how to improve clinical decision making. Chapters explore the intersection of decision making and clinical expertise, as well as ways to improve clinical decisions using evidence-based findings, client feedback, ethics, and more.
