Session Reactions Scale – 3 – Brief (SRS-3-B)

The Session Reactions Scale – 3 – Brief Version (SRS-3-B) is a 15-item self-report post-session measure for collecting systematic feedback on clients’ session reactions in the context of feedback-informed treatment (Řiháček et al., 2023).  It is suitable for clients engaged in psychological therapy who are 18 years and older, and is designed to be administered periodically to track the therapeutic relationship.
