Reach: Pushing Your Clinical Skills and Effectiveness to the Next Level: Scott D. Miller Workshop

Join U.S. counselling psychologist Scott D. Miller, PhD, who is coming to Melbourne to present this special one-day workshop. You'll learn evidence-based practices used by highly-effective therapists, how to identify cases at risk of negative outcomes, and a method for evaluating and enhancing your clinical performance.

Workshop objectives

In this one-day workshop on 12 June 2019, you will gain knowledge and practices to enhance your clinical skills and effectiveness.

You'll learn:

  • three specific, evidence-based practices employed by highly effective therapists
  • an empirically sound, yet clinician-friendly method for determining the effectiveness of your clinical work compared to your peers and national norms
  • how to identify cases most at risk for dropping out of treatment or experiencing a negative or null outcome with you
  • how to develop a profile of your most and least effective practices
  • an evidence-based method for pushing your performance to the next level of effectiveness and efficiency.


Over the last decade, Scott D. Miller, PhD, with colleagues at the International Center for Clinical Excellence, have been tracking the outcomes of thousands of clinicians around the world. Along the way, they have identified specific practices that separate highly effective from average clinicians. On average, they achieve 50 per cent better outcomes than their equally trained and credentialed peers. What’s more, the best have much lower dropout rates and deliver better and more consistent outcomes across a range of client diagnoses, presenting complaints, and motivational levels.
