Efficacy of empirical data in Emotional Wellness (mental health) occurs when constants are measured and changed and legitimacy of the data occurs when it is generated by the client. The constant in Emotional Wellness (mental health) is the clients’ emotional state. Measuring, tacking and improving this constant at every session is what brings about the efficacy of an intervention.
Empirically sound and measurable outcomes in Emotional Health (mental health) are terms rarely used together because there are no standards of measurement as there are in Burris Emotional Wellness. We established a measurable outcome protocol in 1990 and have refined it down to a 22 point three instrument checklist.
