Session Description:

 

Multiple high-quality studies document the overwhelming importance of the therapeutic alliance between practitioners and the persons they serve. The quality of the therapeutic, or working, alliance has a greater effect on treatment outcomes than does the type of therapy; this meaningful effect is consistent across a variety of populations and modalities, including individual, couples, family, child and adolescent psychotherapy, and medication adherence. This is an opportunity to participate in shaping a new SAMHSA-sponsored training curriculum designed to help practitioners improve their skills in building and improving their therapeutic alliances with the people they serve.

 

Learning Objectives:

 

At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the significance of the therapeutic alliance and the role of empathy
  • Articulate at least five core elements for creating a strong therapeutic alliance
  • Demonstrate the evidence-based practices and skills shown to strengthen the therapeutic alliance
  • Identify evidence-based ways to work through challenges to the therapeutic alliance
  • Explain and demonstrate culturally appropriate methods of strengthening the therapeutic alliance
  • Identify at least three tools and methods for assessing the quality of the therapeutic alliance
