Spouses' Agreement in Reporting Their Behavioral Interactions: A Clinical Replication.
Elwood, Richard W.; Jacobson, Neil S.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v50 n5 p783-84 Oct 1982
Tested the hypothesis that low consensus of volunteer couples completing the Spouse Observation Checklist underestimates that achieved by clinic couples. That hypothesis was not supported. Couples (N=10) beginning marital therapy achieved agreement rates on joint SOC behaviors of 38.6 percent. Findings confirm the low reliability of spouse observation. (Author/JAC)
