Abstract

This article begins by presenting a study that explored whether the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS) and each of its subscales could discriminate between those therapy couples who would divorce immediately after therapy and those who would not. The DAS was administered to 70 couples during the second session of marital therapy. Results of this study are then reviewed from a clinician's perspective, and uses of the DAS as an instrument around which effective therapeutic intervention with couples can be structured are suggested. The authors present this article as an example of how clinicians can use research in their therapy, and how clinicians can contribute to the research of couples therapy. © 2000, Sage Publications.
