This state-of-the-art book presents research-based practice guidelines that clinicians of any orientation can use to optimize the therapeutic alliance. Leading proponents of the major psychotherapeutic approaches explain just what a good alliance is, how to create it, and how to recognize and repair alliance ruptures. Applications in individual, group, couple, and family therapy are explored; case examples vividly illustrate the concepts and techniques. Links between the quality of the alliance and client outcomes are elucidated. A section on training fills a major gap in the field, reviewing proven strategies for helping therapists to develop key relationship-building skills.

Reviews:

"Drawing together leading contributors to psychotherapy research, training, and practice, Muran and Barber provide an unparalleled opportunity to develop a critically balanced, research-informed understanding of key factors that contribute to productive therapeutic alliances in differing therapy approaches. I have no doubt that this book will become an 'instant classic' in the field of psychotherapy, one that will continue to shape alliance research and practice in the years to come."
—Lynne E. Angus, PhD, CPsych, Adult Clinical Psychology Graduate Program, York University, Canada; President-Elect, Society for Psychotherapy Research
