ZUANAZZI, Ana Carolina; MOREIRA, Thaline da Cunha; QUELUZ, Francine Náthalie Ferraresi Rodrigues  and  VILLEMOR-AMARAL, Anna Elisa. Assessment of the psychotherapeutic process: survey of techniques and instruments. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.spe, pp. 1-19. ISSN 1983-8220.

One of the most studied aspects in psychotherapeutic interventions are the procedures used in psychotherapy that result in better patient benefits in a shorter period, the evaluation of psychotherapeutic process's efficiency, considering ethics toward the patient, and reducing treatment costs. This study aimed to identify the main instruments used for this purpose. Through a systematized review of literature, 5,938 articles were found, which, after screening by inclusion and exclusion criteria, resulted in a set of 157 studies and the identification of 114 instruments and techniques. After presenting the most recurrent instruments in the literature, some considerations were made regarding the current panorama of evaluation of psychotherapeutic processes, such as the scarcity of Brazilian instruments and the contributions of this research to future studies in this subject.
