Objective: Assessment of psychiatric treatment has been a central issue in psychiatric research. Most assessment tools are based on the patient's account and mainly focus on clinical agendas. Assessment tools, which gather the perspective of attached daily needs are limited. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the inter-rater reliability and internal consistency of the Marmara Family Interview for the Assessment of Psychiatric Treatment (MFIPT) in a clinical sample.
