.

I don't see how anyone can answer this question 
without more information, sorry.

To me it sounds like you need to posit a mean function 
for your dose response and some amount of error about 
that mean function before you can begin to answer your 
question.

I can use a cut-off value to identify those participants who had improved scores at follow-up from those who did not so that I can create a binary variable which codes 'improvers' vs. 'non-improvers'. What I would like to do next is establish what is the minimum number of sessions that patients need to attend to fall under the 'improver' category (dose-response?).
