Once reviewed, the PLL Supervisor selects segments from the video to review with the clinician during supervision sessions.
  • PLL Fidelity Dashboard - (Therapist Adherence Measure): The PLL Fidelity Dashboard is a software application that tracks "real time" client and clinician results. The dashboard tracks such items as completion and attrition rates; referral engagement rates; the number of clients that started the program, dropped out, or are in process; average length of stay; and standardized assessment results along with other results.
  • Group Protocol Checklist - (Therapist Adherence Measure): The Group Protocol Checklist is used to assess treatment fidelity adherence to the PLL group therapy model. Each of the six classes has a scientifically validated checklist of key concepts specific to that class that were either covered or not covered by the therapist. In addition, therapists use a Likert scale to measure how closely they followed the Group Manual.
  • Family Therapy Protocol Checklist - (Therapist Adherence Measure): The Family Therapy Protocol Checklist is a self-report tool used to assess treatment fidelity adherence to the PLL Family Therapy Model. After each family therapy session, the therapist completes each of the areas that assess competency of the major tenets of the PLL Family Therapy Model.
