This workshop reviews the evidence-based elements found to be essential for developing an effective therapeutic alliance. This is illustrated through a self-regulation model of relationship development that provides a guide for organizing an effective therapeutic relationship and empowering clients. Case examples will be provided to illustrate the practical development of evidence-based elements of the alliance.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify three elements of evidence-based therapeutic relationship
  2. Participants will be able to identify three approaches to developing client empowerment through the therapeutic alliance
  3. Participants will be able to identify and explain the development of the therapeutic alliance through the three phases of self-regulation relationship development
