“Does therapy work?” – the second episode of Thinking Ahead, the mental health-tech podcast from ieso – is now out.


Does psychotherapy work? And, if so, how do we know which parts of it are effective? Dr Jennifer Gentile (ieso’s SVP of US Research and Clinical Innovation), Dr Ana Catarino (ieso’s Director of Clinical Science), and Dr Michael Ewbank (ieso’s Senior Clinical Scientist), reveal all in our latest podcast.

Find out:

  • What objective measurements can be taken before and after therapy to determine its effectiveness
  • What Dr Ewbank’s JAMA paper (Quantifying the Association Between Psychotherapy Content and Clinical Outcomes Using Deep Learning) reveals about the “active ingredients” of therapy (the exact language that triggers therapeutic changes)
  • How we know that rapport and empathy are not the key ingredients in patient recovery
  • Other game-changing insights we’ve extracted from our 460,000-therapy-hour dataset that are enabling us to steadily improve our recovery rates.
