Adaptation of research instruments

One of the reasons for the slow progress in psychotherapy research in the Czech Republic is the lack of research instruments. We try to support research projects by translating and adapting selected research instruments from English and other languages, including tools designed for quantitative and qualitative assessment of the therapeutic change, tools designed to measure the psychotherapeutic process and tools used to capture variables that can be potentially used to predict treatment effects. We also conduct psychometric studies that allow us to investigate psychometric properties of the translated instruments. A list of methods that are now available can be found at the link below.
