Whilst feedback is demonstrated to improve therapy outcomes, little attention has been given to the relative benefits of the form in which feedback is given. The present study aimed to compare patients’ perceptions of feedback graphs with and without expected treatment response trajectories. In a counter-balanced design, patients in 2-week CBT programs were shown feedback graphs with and without expected symptom trajectories; and were asked to complete questionnaire regarding the appeal after viewing the first graphs. Patients (n = 42) viewed feedback graphs and preferred those with trajectories present and perceived the additional detail helpful to both themselves and their therapists. The present findings support the appeal for and potential usefulness of richer feedback for facilitating discussion and positive outcomes in therapy.
