The Treatment Outcome Package (TOP; D. R. Kraus, Seligman, & Jordan, 2005) is a multidimensional routine progress and outcome measure developed for use in diverse naturalistic practice settings. In this article, we (a) provide a brief review and summary of the extant psychometric and research support for the TOP, (b) provide examples of the TOP's use in clinical training and practice, and (c) discuss the implications of the TOP for future psychotherapy training, research, and practice. In particular, we focus on the implications of risk-adjusted progress monitoring for systems of care and mental health care decision making.
