The root of many controversies in our field is the important question: “what works with kids?” Is success based on the use of specialized techniques or do other factors account for the change? Focus on how to interview and assess from a strength-based, family centered perspective. This Evidence-Based Practice, called PCOMS (Partners for Change Outcome Management System), is a client-directed and outcome-informed process which is focused on helping us to develop and sustain a therapeutic alliance with all of our clients. Study the Outcome Rating and Satisfaction Rating Scales as a means of understanding your client’s needs and developing the kind of relational alliance that leads to improved success and positive outcomes.
