German term or phrase: ob ein Therapierational vermittelt
This is a survey of psychotherapists:

Sollten sich die Teilnehmer auf die zuletzt erfolgte ambulante Behandlung eines Patienten mit 1 der 3 Störungsbilder «Panikstörung mit Agoraphobie», «Panikstörung ohne Agoraphobie» oder «Agoraphobie ohne Panikstörung in der Vorgeschichte» als Hauptdiagnose beziehen und beantworten, **ob ein Therapierational vermittelt** und welche der 4 möglichen Durchführungsmodalitäten von Exposition angewendet worden waren.

My draft:
The participants were asked about their most recent outpatient treatment of a patient with 1 of the 3 symptom profiles "panic disorder with agoraphobia", "panic disorder without agoraphobia", or "agoraphobia without a history of panic disorder" as the main diagnosis, and to answer the question of whether a therapeutic rationale mediates [[what?]] and which of the 4 possible means of delivery of exposure were used.

This doesn't make sense to me, but if the queried phrase means "whether a therapeutic rationale is mediated" (or taught or conveyed or required), then it would have to be in passive voice, which it isn't.

Thanks in advance!

You missed the "worden waren." That should have been part of the expression.

I hit the wrong button. I am not going to put this in the Kudoz glossary, because it was a grammar problem, not a term problem.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Ah ha! That makes sense. In my defense I can only cite Mark Twain on the German verbs: "Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other side of his Atlantic with his verb in his mouth." Thanks, Michael!

Asker: Thanks again!
