Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Breakthrough's study.

Our goal is to evaluate the potential benefits of online counseling when combined with in-person sessions. Among other things, we’d like to better understand how video counseling might be used to ease physical or time constraints for both client and provider. To participate in the study we’ll ask you to: 1) register, and 2) fill out a brief 10-question survey after each eligible client has completed a session.

In exchange for your participation you’ll receive $50 after each completed survey and free use of the Breakthrough platform.

Study requirements:
  • Client must be current face-to-face client who has never had a session via Breakthrough.
  • Every session must be hosted on the Breakthrough platform.
  • One survey can be completed per new client.
  • We ask you to take a brief 10-question survey.
  • All sessions and surveys must be completed between 4/25/14 and 10/31/14.
