PALMA, Emanuel M. Silva  e  GONDIM, Sônia Maria Guedes. Therapist Personal Style Short Questionnaire: Validity evidence. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.3, pp. 298-307. ISSN 1677-0471.

Therapist’s personal style refers to a multidimensional construct consisting of five basic functions underlying the therapist’s work process. The objective of this article is to analyze the factor validity of the Cuestionario del Estilo del Terapeuta (EPT-C) in a sample of Brazilian psychotherapists. Participants in the study were 674 psychotherapists. A confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to test a five-factor model and a four-factor model. The four-factor model showed better fit to the data, and acceptable internal reliability values were found for its dimensions. Furthermore, we examined the instrument’s ability to detect stylistic differences among groups of therapists as a function of their theoretical orientation. In general, psychoanalysts, humanistic-existential, analytical and systemic therapists consisted of a more homogeneous group than cognitive therapists and behavior therapists. The model fitting process, intergroup differences and suggestions for the revision of the model are discussed.
