Background

Excellent approved translations of the CORE-OM and the YP-CORE into Italian have been done.  Both, of course, were substantial pieces of work involving many people giving time and energy to the work. The CORE-OM translation was led by Dr. Gaspare Palmieri and the YP-CORE was started by Gaspare with Dr. Nadia Lusuardi and finished by Rosalba Di Biase.

CORE-OM

A paper about the translation of the CORE-OM has been published in Italian (Palmieri, G., Evans, C., Freni, S., Bajoni, A., Chicherio, M., Ferrari, S., … Reitano, F. (2006). La valutazione routinaria degli esiti della psicoterapia: traduzione e validazione preliminare del sistema CORE (Clinical outcome for routine evaluation). Nuove Tendenze Della Psicologia, 4, 371–386: not available online). That was followed by a paper about the very respectable psychometric properties of the publication based on an initial exploration of both help-seeking and non-help-seeking samples followed (Palmieri, G., Evans, C., Hansen, V., Brancaleoni, G., Ferrari, S., Porcelli, P., … Rigatelli, M. (2009). Validation of the Italian version of the clinical outcomes in routine evaluation outcome measure (CORE-OM). Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, 16, 444–449. doi:10.1002/cpp.646). I think https://www.academia.edu/8294301/Maindocument_II_3 is Gaspare’s doctorate thesis on the work and a paper by Gaspare and the late and much lamented Franesco Reitano is Palmieri, G., & Reitano, F. (2014). La valutazione degli esiti degli interventi psicologici e il questionario CORE-OM. RIVISTA SPERIMENTALE DI FRENIATRIA, 1, 115–133. https://doi.org/10.3280/RSF2014-001008.

YP-CORE

The paper about the translation and its psychometric properties is Di Biase, R., Evans, C., Rebecchi, D., Baccari, F., Saltini, A., Bravi, E., Palmieri, G., & Starace, F. (2021). Exploration of psychometric properties of the Italian version of the Core Young Person’s Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation (YP-CORE). Research in Psychotherapy: Psychopathology, Process and Outcome, 24(2). https://doi.org/10.4081/ripppo.2021.554. It is open access so clicking on that link should get you the paper.
