Significance of Therapeutic Alliance and Rapport in Treatment Success and Avoiding Ruptures 

When it comes to psychiatry, it’s important to understand that the relationship between psychologist and patient matters –– significantly. Psychologist and patients are part of an ever-evolving relationship and both must put effort in to see the greatest results. Blair Wellness Group in Beverly Hills is here to explain the significance of therapeutic alliance and how it fosters treatment success. Get connected with our licensed clinical psychologists to learn more today. 

Mutuality and Collaboration 

In previous years, there’s been a common misconception that the relationship between a treatment and client is a one-way street. However, this narrative is false, and it can actually harm a patient’s chances of getting the most out of their treatment, as well as prevent the psychologist from getting better at their job. It is important to note that in order for treatment to be effective, both the patient and psychologist should make a commitment to each other to provide ongoing feedback, collaboration, and goals for where they want the treatment to go. 

Flexibility and Responsiveness 

To create the most effective treatment for a patient and adapt to their needs, psychologist should tailor their sessions to the patient’s background, culture, life experiences, emotional tendencies, etc.  This helps strengthen the patient-psychologist relationship, and allows the psychologist to better determine whether treatment is effective or not. 

Giving Feedback

Feedback in a client-psychologist relationship should work both ways. Psychologist should give their feedback about how they feel patients are handling situations, what their next steps should be, etc. Additionally, psychologist should be receiving feedback from clients and incorporating it into treatment, addressing their blindspots, and working to fix their mistakes in order to create the best and most effective treatment environment for clients. 

Working Through Ruptures 

Ruptures are when an element of the client-psychologist alliance breaks. There are many things that can lead to ruptures, such as disagreements on patient goals, mistrust of the psychologist, misinterpretation, etc. In order to handle a rupture, both client and psychologist must recognize that it is happening. After you’ve recognized it, it’s important to address it calmly to ensure your relationship won’t be harmed and you can move past it. 

When it comes to treatment, our licensed clinical psychologists can help provide you with the tools you need and teach you the skills and techniques to set you up for a lifetime of success, but in order to achieve it, you must realize that the client-psychologist relationship is ever-changing and that you must put the work in to maintain it.  Reach out to Blair Wellness Group to learn more about how our clinical licensed psychologists can help you today.
