Severity of client psychological distress, along with scarcity of clinical resources such as effective screening tools, continues to increase in university counseling centers. Pearson’s correlation, logistic regression, and standard multiple regression analyses compared the concurrent and predictive validity of two measures of global psychological functioning, the Counseling Center Assessment Psychological Functioning-70 (CCAPS-70) and the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI). Results demonstrated support for both instruments’ ability to identify symptoms placing clients at risk for premature counseling termination and subsequent prolonged impairment. Implications for clinical practice and further research pertaining to university counseling center services are discussed.
