Therapy Outcome Data of 91 patients who worked with Dr. Hong or Dr. Eidelman

At the Redwood Center for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Research, we are dedicated to providing our patients with evidence-based care. This means that we pay attention to the research literature, and that we systematically monitor the treatment progress of our patients.

Research shows that clinicians who receive regular feedback about how a patient is doing will have better therapy outcomes. Although we monitor treatment progress in different ways, we often ask patients to complete the Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale 21 (also called the DASS 21) at every session. 

The above graph shows patient data for each of the DASS subscales. We only included patients who showed an elevated score at the start of treatment. 

Depression. The average patient struggling with depression came in with a score of 20.71 (standard deviation = 9.88) and ended treatment with a score of 5.84 (standard deviation = 5.96). Meaning, on average, these patients started with a "severe" depression score and ended in the "normal" range.

Anxiety. The average patient struggling with anxiety came in with a score of 14.11 (standard deviation = 7.83) and ended with a score of 3.75 (standard deviation = 4.99). Meaning, on average, these patients started with a "moderate" anxiety score and ended in the "normal" range.

Stress. The average patient struggling with stress came in with a score of 23.15 (standard deviation = 7.45) and ended with a score of 8.89 (standard deviation = 6.60). Meaning, on average, these patients started with a "moderate" stress score and ended in the "normal" range.

Overall, 75.44% of these patients ended treatment with their symptom scores in the normal range, and 73.51% saw a clinically significant reduction in their depression, anxiety, and/or stress symptoms.

We are proud of our treatment outcomes and pleased to share them with you. However, please note that the data presented are general and not specific to individual circumstances. Individual results may vary.
