The Emotion Focused Therapy-Therapist Fidelity Scale (EFT-TFS) is introduced as a scale to measure a therapist's fidelity to the EFT model. The rationale and conceptual development of the scale are presented. Members of an EFT electronic mailing list who participated in a survey (n=130) rated all of the items as highly important for the practice providing support for the content validity of the scale. Finally, the 13 items of the EFT-TFS are presented. Future research directions for the EFT-TFS are presented.
