Therapeutic Expectancies and Treatment Outcome: A Quantitative Review.
Berman, Jeffrey S.
All available research in which a therapeutic expectancy was directly assessed and than related to a measure of outcome was reviewed. The review revealed that across all studies both client and therapist expectancies appear related to improvement; however, in the better-designed research a differential pattern emerges in which client expectancy no longer demonstrates a systematic correlation, and therapist expectancy retains a reliable, if modest, relationship with the success of therapy.
