Therapeutic Alliance Quality Scale

Therapeutic Alliance Quality Scale (TAQS/TAQR)

(Bickman et al., 2010).

The TAQS is a 5-item measure designed to assess a youth’s experience of the therapeutic alliance during one session with their therapist. We rate the measure on a 5-point Likert scale from one (“Not at all”) to five (“Totally”).  If a score on the TAQS falls below 3.80, the therapeutic Alliance is considered low by the youth. The TAQR is a 6-item measure intended to be used with the TAQS by both the therapist and caregiver. Two caregiver items ask about the caregiver’s general feelings about their working alliance with their therapist. Four therapist items ask the therapist to check how accurately they know the youth and caregiver’s perception of the therapeutic alliance and see how well these assessments line up with the therapist’s own perception of the therapeutic alliance. We rate the TAQR on a 5-point Likert scale from one (“Not at all”) to five (“Totally”).
