Although psychotherapy has been proven to be an effective form of help, its effectiveness has been hitting an imaginary ceiling for several decades. A possible reason for this is the lack of immediate feedback that would allow therapists to detect various difficulties early in the therapeutic process and respond appropriately. Existing research shows that, as therapists, we tend to overestimate our skills and often fail to recognize dissatisfaction and deterioration in our clients in a timely manner. This text aims to introduce DeePsy, an online tool for continuous monitoring of the psychotherapy process and outcome. The application provides therapists with ongoing and systematic feedback on their work based on regularly administered questionnaires and automatic analysis of session recordings. The article explains the basic principles underlying DeePsy and describes its current status. It also offers a reflection on feedback in the broader context of the culture of psychotherapeutic work.
