Abstract

Clients seen in two marriage and family therapy training clinics were surveyed regarding treatment outcome. They rated their therapist's skill level on several therapist variables including “experience,”“confident,”“concerned,” how well the treatment used seemed to “fit” their view of the problem and if the therapist seemed to “know how to deal” with their concerns. The variable of “fit” of treatment accounted for 35% of the variance in the client's perception of treatment outcome. “Concerned,”“fit,“ and “knew how to deal” accounted for 36% of the variance in overall rating of the therapist. Suggestions for using these results in supervision of beginning therapists are given.
