Abstract:

Assessment of therapeutic competence is required to be multi-informant and should therefore include the perspectives of therapists, clients and observers. There are several instruments assessing therapeutic competence from one of the requested perspectives. But heretofore there is no valid and reliable set of measurements that allows the assessment of therapeutic competence from the different perspectives based on the same theoretical basis, what is central for making comparisons possible. We developed a set of measurements assessing therapeutic competences from different perspectives: therapists’ global (GloRa-T) and session self-rating (SeRa-T), clients’ session rating (SeRa-C) and observer rating (CoRa-O). The psychometric properties of the measurements were investigated. The analysis suggested satisfactory psychometric properties of the presented measurements, some limitations are discussed. All measurements are promising instruments for multi-informant assessment of therapeutic competence. They assess the same components of therapeutic competence, so comparisons among the perspectives are possible.
Key words: therapeutic competence, assessment, multi-informant rating
