One early psychotherapy session for each patient was independently rated with the In-session RF scale and with the PACS Exploring scale.RESULTS: Both scales were found to be reliable and to have concurrent validity with the RF scale rated on the AAI, with the PACS Exploring scale found to be a better predictor of RF on the AAI.CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that the PACS Exploring scale might be a practical method for assessing RF in psychotherapy research and a way for researchers and clinicians to track patients' RF on an ongoing basis.
