As part of our commitment to the advancement of psychological education, research and training, we wanted to introduce our members to Greenspace, which is a clinical platform that helps psychologists measure and track client progress throughout the treatment process. Greenspace is free to use (for both psychologists and clients) and we encourage you to check out their website at www.grnspace.com. Here is a brief summary of what they do:
What is Greenspace?
Greenspace is a digital platform that makes it easy for psychologists to measure and monitor their clients’ mental health symptoms. Greenspace is a Canadian company, fully compliant with all privacy regulations, and is used by over 800 therapists in Canada. Research is clear that the ongoing measurement and display of client progress, increases client engagement and significantly improves therapy outcomes.
How it Works
- Selection: For each client, psychologists select from a list of 25+ evidence based assessments across a range of clinical areas (including depression, anxiety, addictions and functioning).
- Assessment: Clients can complete assessments either during session or remotely. No app or login is required when clients complete assessments remotely, and assessments can be easily completed on any device.
- Results: Assessment results and progress can be reviewed via secure login by both psychologist and client.
For Clinics and Organizations
For clinics and organizations, Greenspace provides access to a statistical displayof client outcomes across the organization, as well as a master list of clients, that lets clinical directors quickly identify any clients that are off track and in need of additional support. Organizations have never had this much clarity on client progress or outcomes – allowing them to make better decisions, support funding (or marketing) efforts and more effectively evaluate programs.
