Friedlander, Myrna L.; Dunkle, John H.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v43 n4 p456-60 Oct 1996
Therapists (N=73) completed measures that assessed levels of self-directed hostility, perceived social supports, and degree of comfort with attachment. Their clients completed a measure that estimated the working alliance between the third and fifth sessions of therapy. Results show that the above factors predicted the working alliance's bond component. (RJM)
