Authenticity Scale (AS)

A twelve item self-report therapy change scale created to reflect Carl Rogers’ ideas of authenticity and its loss as central to distress/dyfunction and to recovery through therapy.

Details #

The scale was first described in: Wood, A. M., Linley, P. A., Maltby, J., Baliousis, M., & Joseph, S. (2008). The authentic personality: A theoretical and empirical conceptualization and the development of the Authenticity Scale. Journal of Counseling Psychology, 55(3), 385–399. It has been widely used though there are perhaps surprisingly few reports on its use in therapies. It has three four-item subscales: Authentic Living, Self-Alienation and Accepting External Influence.
