More than a decade ago, I met Dr. Paul Faulkner, the founder and then Chief Executive Officer of Resources for Living (RFL), an innovative employee assistance program located in Austin, Texas.
I was teaching a week-long course on outcome-informed work at the Cape Cod Institute in Eastham, Massachusetts.
Paul had long searched for a way of improving outcomes and service delivery that could simultanesouly be used to provide evidence of the value of treatment to purchasers-in the case of RFL, the large, multinational companies that were paying him to manage their employee assistance programs.

When Dr. Faulkner
and the other folks at Resources for Living
have data showing that their program has helped people keep a significant amount of weight off for (at a minimum) 2-5 years with not problematic iatrogenic side effects I'll be very interested in a look at their work.
