The Intersession Report: Development of a Short Questionnaire for Couples Therapy
intersession report, couples therapy, asses clients
This article describes the Intersession Report, a short, easily administered nine-item questionnaire that clients complete at the beginning of each therapy session. This questionnaire was developed to enable clinicians and researchers to routinely collect standardized data on clients. Results showed that the Intersession Report has three subscales that represent Functioning, Symptoms, and Alliance. The subscales scores demonstrated multiple forms of validity and reliability. The Intersession Report provides clinicians a quick and easy way to assess clients. It also provides researchers information on clients who discontinue therapy and information that can be used in assessing attrition bias.
