What’s new for 2017?

An electronic version of PSYCHLOPS is now available through the CORE IMS website. It is currently being piloted and we are looking for organisations who would like to help with piloting. For further details, click on the Electronic PSYCHLOPS tab above.

The World Health Organization is designing and testing a number of scalable psychological interventions for use in non-specialist services with the aim to reduce the treatment gap for common mental disorders. A modified version of PSYCHLOPS is being used as an outcome measure in WHO Randomised Controlled Trials and as part of the “Problem Management Plus” intervention, which can be found on their website:

Dr Paula Alves has completed her doctoral research using PSYCHLOPS, entitled "Patient involvement in psychological treatment for substance misuse: towards a personalised outcome measurement approach." Her research has demonstrated that outcome measurement in substance misuse treatment is lacking the perspectives of patients and individualised outcome measures, such as PSYCHLOPS, are a feasible and reliable method to collect such perspectives.

Since September 2015, all access to PSYCHLOPS has been free of charge. In legal terms, it will be copyleft (not ‘copyright’) which means that it can be copied freely but not changed without permission from the authors. We are hoping that access and uptake of PSYCHLOPS will be greatly enhanced by making it completely free.
