Multitrait-multimethod analysis in psychotherapy research: New methodological approaches


Eid, M; Geiser, C; Nussbeck, F W (2009). Multitrait-multimethod analysis in psychotherapy research: New methodological approaches. Psychotherapy Research, 19(4-5):390-396.

Abstract

Multimethod measurement plays a crucial role in psychology to analyze the convergent and discriminant validity, estimate the degree of method specificity, and scrutinize the generalizability of results of empirical studies and assessment procedures across methods. The implications of multimethod approaches for test validation, multimethod measurement, indication, and evaluation in psychotherapy research are discussed. Moreover, an overview of modern methodological approaches of multitrait-multimethod analysis for cross-sectional and longitudinal data is given. In particular, basic principles of confirmatory factor analysis models for interchangeable and structurally different methods are explained.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
