How do you measure progress?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Mental Health Counselor interview

How to Answer

Progress doesn't look the same for every client. It's your job to help them move forward in their lives by looking at the past, patterns, and ways of thinking that are keeping them from living a full life. They may never reach their full potential through the time you are counseling them, but you have the opportunity to show them what they are capable of.

How do you measure progress?
Answer example

"I measure progress differently in each of my clients. Overcoming a fear, the ability to finally leave the house or even being able to go out for coffee with friends."

Answer example

"“I measure progress by asking the client to give me ratings, and I ask them to justify those ratings. While a lot of the work goes beyond quantification, it’s still a necessary tool to gauge the rate of progress. I look at those ratings and compare them to my own assessments. I tell the client about my opinion of their progress to help them get a good baseline and to inform their own appraisals.”"
