Although patient arousal is a presumed contributor to psychotherapy outcome, there currently exists no established measure of its occurrence in a clinical population. This article examines psychometric properties of a nonverbal measure of arousal used with clients in two types of group psychotherapy, experiential and cognitive. A further investigation looks at the relationship between nonverbal arousal and within session benefits in the two group psychotherapies. Different patterns of arousal characterized the different group therapy modalities.
