The authors provide psychometric support for the comprehensive counseling skills rubric (CCSR). The CCSR is designed to assess trainee’s counseling proficiency, identify how counseling skills are used within phases of a counseling session, and evaluate the counseling relationship. The CCSR content validity was verified with an overall mean item content validity index of .81. There was a strong domain-level internal consistency reliability (.73 to .84). Fleiss’ κ of .70 demonstrated substantial interrater reliability. Thus, the results indicate initial support for using the CCSR as a transtheoretical instrument designed to assess a counseling trainee’s ability to execute the counseling experience.
