We’re looking forward to joining you for the forthcoming PPS event on 15th March, and we’re asking for your help in shaping it by completing this short survey. It will take no more than two minutes of your time. Rest assured; we won’t ask for information that could identify you personally.

If you’ve not used measures before, this will give you a chance to experience completing one ‘as if’ you were the client. You’ll also see what story the measures we complete individually tell about us collectively (in terms of psychological distress).

We love audience participation, so, in addition to asking these questions, we’ll be feeding back your aggregated responses in the session. We’ve no idea what themes may emerge – we’re as much in your hands as you are in ours!

Consistent with the theme of using measures as one way of getting feedback about how our clients experience therapy, we’ll ask you a series of simple questions that cover three broad areas:
You, your work, and your current use of measures.
Frequency of complaints in general, and your concerns about being complained about.
Client engagement, alliance ruptures, and ensuring clients are getting what they came for.
We’ll collate your responses and feed them back in the session. The more we have, the better, so please give your perspectives anonymously by clicking Next below (you can bail out at any time).

Wait, there’s more!

What if you could complete a measure now online? What if we all did that (anonymously) at the end of this survey? What if we also collated those responses and profiled them in the session? What story might they tell about how we’re all doing right now (me included)?

You guessed it. After submitting the survey, you’ll have the opportunity to complete a ten-item CORE-10 measure asking how you’ve been over the last week. Again, no personally identifiable information will be asked for.


What is CORE-10

CORE-10 is a ten-item measure of general psychological distress. The ten items are derived directly from the CORE-OM parent measure. It captures a range of ‘core’ concerns that present in therapy settings, including problems/symptoms, functioning and risk of harm to self. It was developed to respond to the need for a brief screening and progress monitoring tool that could be used to track session-to-session progress. Further details can be found here and on the CORE System Trust pages.
