Questions related to Therapeutic Alliance
I`m conducting the translation of a very short scale of 12 ítems to assess therapeutic alliance in children. I have 61 answers and I wonder if that number of subjects it`s acceptable to run Exploratory Factor Analysis. I know that there is a suggestion of 5 participants for item to do EFA and 10 participants for item to do CFA. However, the number of participants here seem to be very smal for these analysys. What it´s your opinion?
Hi! I've reviewed the literature about developing therapeutic alliance with children but I couldn't find any article about at which session therapist and child started to develop therapeutic alliance. If you have any article suggestions related to that topic, I will be so glad

The current pandemic is a huge challenge for mental health care providers for several reasons:
- there will be an increase in treatment provision due to anxieties and uncertainties in the general population,
- many community care services have been shut down or completely closed in response to public health instructions,
- some people with mental disorders are not able to adhere to public health restrictions,
- most clients live in the community nowadays and their mental health needs and their basic needs must be met,
- the provision of mental health care in general and the therapeutic alliance in particular is difficult to do while adhering to infection control (masks, gowns etc.),
- mental health care providers across the western world have been unprepared for the current situation - similar to the rest of public and private institutions.
To gather and to share information, documents and links (e.g. guidance, recommendations), Bern University Hospital for Mental Health, Switzerland, has set up a website that collects useful information, currently in German, English and French.
If you are interested in collaborating and discussing the best way to conduct mental health care during the crisis, please visit our website and/or respond to this post.
I'm attempting to write a lit-review on issues/benefits (assumptions, biases, resistance, counter transference, etc.) found specifically in a therapeutic alliance between a therapist and therapist-client. But I haven't found any literature or research regarding this question. Admittedly, this topic may be to broad to write a lit-review, thus any help would be greatly appreciated!
Looking at Anorexia Nervosa - the evidence base for CBT's effectiveness is inconclusive. Though, I was thinking before about the link between Anorexia and emotions (not being able to express / experiencing negative emotions - and partly "using" food restriction as a way to control these) - let's say a strong therapeutic bond is formed, and an individual feels comfortable discussing extraneous feelings / thoughts - could this help with the need for food as a control mechanism and aid recovery in some way..
Not sure there is much evidence on this though.
as you know every psychological approaches have its own description of therapeutic alliance tensions. Although a general view point of alliance is important, I think for repairing and managning it we need a especific approach.

I am currently in early stages of qualitative research design in the areas of perceptions and exploration of older adults . I am looking at investigating older adults with personality disorders and their experiences with Schema therapies to learn how as therapists we may then correlate it to younger patients in the life span and in addition enhance older patients quality of life
I am look to incorporate Delphi technique, qualitative questionnaire , focus groups and discussion
your thoughts in an area that is not well developed are valuable to a proof of concept or initial paper on the area of enhancing therapy for older patients and of course applying it to younger patients .

I am interested to find subtle differences in presentation and other symptoms of older people with borderline personality disorder ( bpd )
As I continue my research and build my knowledge in this area I find it curious that not more work has been done in this area which would greatly assist the therapist whether they be a psychologist or counsellor in the areas of understanding the mind of an older person and therapies to assist the client more holistically in therapy
I am curious to understand if there is possible new presentations of BPD in older age , as was the case in myself as a patient the possibility symptoms that otherwise would not appear earlier .
Or are we to assume that older people have had BPD from a younger age ?
Interested in your thoughts in this area as I increase my knowledge my masters in Counselling ( Mental Health practices) at the University of Southern Queensland

I am looking for scales on therapeutic relations or alliance that have been standardised and used with Greek participants and have been administered in Greek.
I am researching resistance in therapy by comparing the strength of the therapeutic alliance between "resistant" clients and mental health counselors vs "resistant" clients and art therapists. I am already using the STAR to measure alliance, but am looking for a way to quantify "resistance" to help therapists identify clients for the study.
Endogenous is in DSM - I am interested to find out about the psychological impact of having this diagnosis, is there correlation to brain or body? What interventions are available? Any research in relation to this diagnosis.

I am working on a project and am looking for information on how clinical psychology supervisors can assist supervisees in approaching pt emotions instead of avoiding. Any information on teaching how to identify pt emotions, mindfulness of pt emotion, and increasing comfort in approaching pt emotion will be helpful. I am interested in how supervisors can assist supervisees with their therapeutic alliances with pts.
Thank you, Research Gate community!
From any theoretical orientation & not necessarily specific to DSM categorization. Also, curious about any take on the impact of the therapist personality on the therapeutic relationship.
Interested in any exploration of the dimension of friendship in the therapeutic relationship. This may include considerations of intimacy and mutuality, but I'm particularly interested in explicit considerations of "friendship" in this context.
I'm interested on anything current or seminal on "self-agency" from various schools within the psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral & humanistic traditions. Anything from conceptual treatises to empirical investigations. I'm interested in how relevant self-agency is considered for well-being and how change in self-agency is effected from various perspectives. Anything on method & measurement in addition to clinical theory.
Any data on therapist actual use of the CST manual and whether it was found to be beneficial or useful by clinicians? I'm interested in data beyond the value of feedback regarding progress on the OQ (Outcome Questionnaire) and regarding reasons for poor progress on the ASC (Assessment for Signal Clients: alliance, motivation, social support, life events).
Any research on patient personality disorder as it impacts patient-therapist interactions or the therapeutic alliance since 2010.
For example: Tufekclioglu, S., Muran, J.C., Safran, J.D., & Winston, A. (2013). Personality disorder and early therapeutic alliance in two time-limited therapies. Psychotherapy Research.
Anyone aware of new research on problems or difficulties in the therapeutic relationship, alliance ruptures, therapeutic impasses, treatment resistance, patient-therapist hostility? Anything since the attached review/meta-analysis (Safran, Muran, & Eubank-Carter, 2011)?

Third wave CBT can for example be less symptom focused, which may be beneficial for comorbid clients. I'm interested in anything surrounding this, but especially whether the therapeutic alliance is (positively) affected by the third wave approach?
We all know that good therapeutic relationship is associated with better psychotherapy outcome. I have a simple question, some theoreticians/clinicians and researchers suggest that the therapeutic relationship is curative on its own. As I have tried to study that question I am interested to hear people thoughts on what about the relationship is curative and how does that work?
