It may in fact be a simple effect of the temporal progression of the therapy rather than an important causal factor.

D., and Muran, J. C. (1996). Numerous studies have shown that the therapeutic alliance is one of the strongest predictors of treatment outcomes.

In the early phases, it may create problems in terms of the patient’s commitment to the process of therapy. One conceptualization of therapeutic alliance in group psychotherapy follows Bordin’s theory, transferring this multifactorial construct from an individual to a group setting. The working alliance: where are we and where should we go? Patterns of helping alliance development and outcome. (1998).

Although a comparison between different treatment modalities is a topic beyond the scope of this paper, it is worth noting that in the late 1980s, some authors (Marmar et al., 1989a,b) failed to demonstrate significant differences between behavioral, cognitive, and brief psychodynamic therapies in the level of alliance as measured by CALPAS.

The child had to see us as someone they wanted to work with, much like a client in a therapist’s office must see the therapist as someone they want to work with, and establish an alliance.

The proposal of a therapeutic alliance characterized by a variable pattern over the course of treatment is also examined. Marziali, E. (1984). Rogers, C. R. (1951). When defining therapeutic alliance in a group context, it is necessary to take into account the comparison with group cohesion, another central construct that is often confused with alliance. This viewpoint was more recently confirmed by Strupp (2001), who showed that the outcome of a psychotherapeutic process is often influenced by so-called non-specific factors, namely, the personal characteristics of the therapist and the positive feelings that arise in the patient – feelings which can lead to the creation of a positive therapeutic climate from an emotional and interpersonal perspective.
