Therapists' recall of early sudden gains in routine clinical practice (pages 107-114)

This study followed up one by Stiles et al. (2003), which identified sudden gains – large reductions from one session to the next on a short form of clinical outcomes in routine evaluation outcome measure (CORE‐SF) – by some clients in routine clinical practice. We interviewed the therapists who had treated sudden gain and non‐sudden gain clients. Results showed that therapists could retrospectively identify which clients had or had not experienced sudden CORE‐SF gains at substantially better than chance rates, although they identified only about half of the clients who had experienced such gains.
