|Résumé :||In this article we describe the development and psychometric properties of a self-administered instrument for assessing drug-user treatment counselors' therapeutic approaches such as psychodynamic or interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, family systems or dynamics, 12-step, and case management. We generated an initial pool of items corresponding to these five approaches and modified them based on expert ratings. We developed three sets of items. The first concerned the beliefs underlying each therapeutic approach. The second and third concerned the practices of each applicable approach within individual and group counseling, respectively. With the exception of case management, an approach that originated within social work and which is only applicable to individual counseling, the other four approaches are applicable, at least theoretically, to both individual and group counseling. Additionally, we included items that describe techniques used exclusively with groups (i.e., group techniques). Finally, we included some items that are not associated with any of the traditional approaches but which reflect the practical approach that drug-user treatment programs often take to both individual and group counseling (i.e., practical counseling). The initial instrument consisted of 17 subscales with a total of 76 items. This instrument was administered to 226 counselors from 45 drug-user treatment programs in Los Angeles County. Based on this data, we further refined these scales using confirmatory factor analysis to ensure both construct validity and discriminant validity. The final instrument consisted of 14 subscales with a total of 48 items. (Editor's abstract.)|
