[automatically translated] Numerous studies demonstrate efficacy and effectiveness of group therapy, but still there are few empirical studies on group psychodynamic therapies, especially long-term, a shortage due to the costliness and complexity of research designs to be prepared in this area which, however, It is of considerable clinical interest, for its diffusion, in Italy and in Europe. In particular, it is important to the analysis of the relationship between outcome and process variables in different therapeutic moments that mark the group is the path that the individual one. This paper analyzes the relationship between the outcome variables and process (both in terms groupal and individual) of a long-term therapeutic group, semi-open, group-to-run. Specific project objectives are: 1) assess how the ' alliance, cohesion and other therapeutic factors are correlated with the outcome of the therapy; 2) analyze the relationship between alliance and outcome on the symptom level, personality and interpersonal structure; 3) assess the relationship between cohesion and outcomes on the symptom level, personality and interpersonal structure; 4) evaluate the relationship between "impact of the seat" on the symptoms and outcomes floor, personality and interpersonal structure. The instruments used are: OQ-45.2 (Lambert, Burlingame, 1996; Lo Coco, lend, Gullo, Di Stefano, Lambert, 2006); DSQ (San Martini, Rome, Sarti, Lingiardi, Bond, 2004); SCL 90-R (Derogatis L., 1991); CALPAS (Marmar et al., 1986; 1989; 1989a; Gaston, 1991; Gaston and Marmar, 1994); GMLCS (Piper et al. 1983; 1984; 2002 Jones, Lacroix, Marrache, Richardson, 1984); YES S (Elliott R., Wexler M., 1994). The results were analyzed using the RCI (Reliable Change Index) to evaluate statistically and clinically the outcome of individual patients, the effect indices (effect size) to assess the extent of changes and obtain an average index of outcome group, and finally correlational analysis between the scales of the outcome and the process.
