As research continues to proliferate about the effectiveness of psychotherapy, mental health clinicians appear to be limited in their effectiveness and growth. If clinicians hope to meet their ethical responsibilities of beneficence and accountability, new methods to ensure client success are needed. Within the framework of deliberate practice, clinicians can use the methods of Feedback-informed treatment (FIT) to effectively modify treatment and improve their own performance, resulting in improved client outcomes. This manuscript will provide the evidence supporting the use of deliberate practice and FIT, the major aspects of each, and the potential that these approaches offer to mental health clinicians to meet their ethical responsibilities to meet client needs through effective and empirically supported methods.
