Systematic Treatment Selection (STS) is an empirically derived approach to the practise of psychotherapy developed by Larry E. Beutler. It revolves around the use of an expert system to guide the clinician's thinking about how best to approach a particular case. The STS model has been demonstrated to improve treatment outcomes significantly compared to treatment as usual.[1]
