Avoiding the downsides of the ‘golden standard’

Avoiding the downsides of the ‘golden standard’

Another downside is the high cost of the long term studies. What are our responsibilities as clinicians in this context? The golden standard demands group samples from diagnostic groups. At the same time most clinical therapists agree that choosing treatment method form diagnostic groups is less effective than trying to adapt therapy after the individual client. This problem is closely related to the fact that clinically, the origin of a symptom often is more important to the most effective solution than the symptom category. Behind a symptom like impotence there can be extremely different origins and an increased understanding here helps the therapist to choose the most efficient treatment. Based on experience from Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) the lecturer will show how you can avoid or reduce these downsides. And at the same time maintain an ethical, safe and high clinical standard.
