Relation between Working Alliance and Outcome in Psychotherapy: A Meta-Analysis.
Horvath, Adam O.; Symonds, B. Dianne
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n2 p139-49 Apr 1991
Used meta-analysis to synthesize results of 24 studies (based on 20 distinct data sets) relating quality of working alliance (WA) to therapy outcome. Found moderate but reliable association between good WA and positive therapy outcome. WA quality was most predictive of treatment outcomes based on clients' assessments, less so of therapists' assessments, and least predictive of observers' report. (Author/NB)
