The IPT Quality and Adherence Scale is available for free to all clinicians.  The scale was developed with funding from a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, and is reliable and fully validated.  Higher scores on the IPT Quality and Adherence Scale are correlated with better psychotherapy outcomes, and there is high correlation between supervisor and therapist self-ratings on the items included in the Scale.

The IPT Quality and Adherence Scale can be used in research settings as well as community clinical settings.  IPT therapists and supervisors can use it as a guide to conducting IPT.  The Scale is used to rate portfolios in all of the IPT certification programs.

An electronic version of the IPT Quality and Adherence Scale is also available– please contact us at if you are interested in accessing the electronic version.
