Matching treatment to therapy expectations is important. It increases treatment benefit and prevents dropout. No treatment expectation inventory existed in Hebrew, therefore a translation from English, of the Psychotherapy Expectancy Inventory-Revised, developed by Berzins, was undertaken. The questionnaire was given to 268 students twice, to 21 therapists and 107 parents of children referred to a child and adolescent clinic once. The translated questionnaire has high test-retest reliability, high internal consistency and significant criterion related validity-contrasted groups on advice, audience and relationship. Factor analysis yielded the four original scales, with the exception of two questions, which were moved to different scales.
