It is this connection between client and clinician that has such a large influence on outcomes in therapy. Together, we will examine the nature of rapport and discuss what strengthens and weakens it. We will also discuss common barriers that prevent us from fully connecting with clients, and how to successfully address those obstacles.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the definition of the therapeutic alliance
  • Discuss how the therapeutic alliance influences therapeutic outcomes

  • Describe how to certain actions may weaken or destroy the therapeutic alliance
