Patient and Therapist Values in Psychotherapy: Perceived Changes, Assimilation, Similarity, and Outcome.
Kelly, Timothy A.; Strupp, Hans H.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n1 p34-40 Feb 1992
Investigated values of 36 patient-therapist dyads in psychotherapy. Found that patient assimilation of therapist values was positively correlated with therapist's outcome assessment, but not with other outcome measures. Patient-therapist dyads whose values were moderately similar showed most improvement, indicating that intermediate range of values similarity may function as predictor of positive outcome.
