Abstract

The authors describe the Prognostic Index, a clinical form for rating patients on 31 variables believed to be significant in predicting outcome of psychotherapy. Forty-seven patients were rated on this instrument at the beginning of therapy. Factor analysis of the Prognostic Index revealed the five main dimensions that its 31 variables represent. The outcome of therapy was significantly predicted by the patients' scores on three fators: General Emotional Health, Intellectual Achievement, and Acute Depression.
