Two Resources mention in Presentation

The 6-CIT is an instrument I use in practice. It is easier to use than the MSE with clients who are in a nursing home. Optum Insurance is the first page and the second page has some references to research on the 6-CIT in practice.

Dr Scott Miller developed the Session Rating Scale and Outcome Rating Scale and offers CEs to assist in providing practitioners with competency to use it. I believe the current certification program is called FIT.

The Secrets of Supershrinks: Pathways to Clinical Excellence

An article by Scott Miller and colleagues from the Psychotherapy Networker

I have uploaded this article as a resource. It offers some interesting ideas about clinical work with clients. This offers some examples of how Deliberate Practice can enhance your competencies. You may want to seek a Qualified Supervisor who focuses on Deliberate Practice for your supervision for licensure.
