Human Givens (HG) Therapy Outcomes       

Human Givens Institute Practice Research Network

All HG practitioners are encouraged to work in an outcome-informed way, recording data at each session. This anonymous data is entered into a research network to build up data for further research and measure the therapists continued effectiveness. Results submitted by numerous therapists over the past five years show that an average of only 3.6 sessions or fewer are required for emotional well-being.
