Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 15, 2016
Theravue Inc., an online application built for therapists, is pleased to announce Dr. Bruce E. Wampold PhD as its Chief Scientist.
With the goal of helping therapists improve their client outcomes, Theravue is building a system that leverages all that the scientific community knows - and continues to learn - about therapeutic outcomes and how to improve them. At the top of their list of potential scientific advisors was Dr. Bruce Wampold.
"We are very pleased to have Dr. Bruce Wampold as part of our team," said Theravue CEO Kurt Shuster. "His extensive research on the science of therapeutic outcomes has been an essential ingredient in developing the Theravue system."
Dr. Wampold, who is one of the world’s leading psychotherapy researchers, earned his doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of California and is the Patricia L. Wolleat Emeritus Professor of Counseling Psychology at the University of Wisconsin—Madison and Director of the Research Institute at Modum Bad Psychiatric Center in Vikersund, Norway.
Joining Theravue is a great opportunity for Dr. Wampold to see his research applied to a large audience using the latest technology.
“I have been a psychotherapy researcher and trainer of therapists for over 35 years. The research evidence and my involvement in training has convinced me that there are innovative ways to improve the benefits of psychotherapy,” Dr. Wampold said. “Creating an online platform is the future.”
Dr. Wampold became involved in the development of Theravue after he was interviewed by co-founders Kurt Shuster and Stephan Wiedner multiple times about the science of psychotherapy.
“After a few conversations it was clear to me that the founders had a vision that I endorsed—helping therapists improve based on peer consultation and deliberate practice. Simply, I said, ‘I want to be part of this!” Dr. Wampold explained.
