The evidence indicates that psychotherapists do not improve their outcomes over the course of their careers.  Various methods have been offered for improving outcomes, including delivering evidence based treatments and using routine outcome monitoring (ROM).  Neither of these methods has led to therapist development  An understanding of what makes psychotherapy work suggests that improved facilitative interpersonal skills (FIS) will lead to improvement of outcomes.  Deliberate practice of FIS in challenging interactions will improve outcomes gradually.
