This study examined whether the Outcome Questionnaire-45 (OQ) and its subscales assessed unique interpersonal distress. The Inventory of Interpersonal Problems (IIP) was used to assess discriminant validity for unique interpersonal distress. Participants (N = 121) were recruited from a southwestern university counselor training center. Significant correlations emerged between OQ and IIP scores supporting the OQ as a measure of general interpersonal distress. However, the OQ subscales do not significantly assess unique types of interpersonal distress.
