Sure, everyone “knows” that the therapy relationship is crucial to treatment success. Clinical experience and controlled research consistently demonstrate that the therapy relationship accounts for more outcome than the particular treatment method. But, what, exactly has been shown to work? This webinar will review the meta-analytic research and clinical practices compiled by an interdivisional APA task force on effective elements of the therapy relationship. Discover which relationship elements work and which do not.
- Identify at least three therapist relational behaviors that demonstrably improve the effectiveness of psychotherapy, describe two relationship elements that have not been sufficiently researched, and identify two discredited relationship behaviors that contribute to dropout and failure.
