Cognitive therapy competence scale for social phobia

Cognitive therapy competence scale for social phobia
Therapist competence has typically been measured by two trained independent assessors who score two separate sessional videotapes using a 0 to 6 scale “with ratings of 0 indicating poor therapist performance and ratings of 6 indicating excellent competence.” Competence scores have predicted outcome‚ particularly the six starred items. Note that highly trained/supervised‚ successful therapists only averaged a score of 2.9.
please use the 0 to 6 scale on the right – the numbers indicate therapist competence
