Abstract

A time-lagged design was used to examine how the perceptions of alliance to the group as a whole bythe other group members at an earlier point in the group were related to an individual group member’sperceptions of alliance to the group as a whole at a later point in the group. We also examined howtreatment outcome moderated this relationship. Seventy-three patients diagnosed as overweight or obeseparticipating in 10 short-term therapy groups provided data for analyses. Group members completedmeasures of cohesion to the group and alliance to the group as a whole at the third, sixth, and last sessionof 12-session groups as well as pre- and posttest ratings on Obesity-Related Well-Being and the OutcomeQuestionnaire– 45. As hypothesized, earlier ratings of alliance to the group as a whole by the other groupmembers were related to later ratings of alliance to the group as a whole by the group member. Also ashypothesized, when group members had a better outcome, there was a significant positive relationshipbetween perceptions of alliance to the group as a whole by the other group members at an earlier pointin the group and an individual group member’s perceptions of alliance to the group as a whole at a laterpoint in time. When members had a worse outcome, there was no relationship between perceptions ofalliance to the group as a whole by the other group members at an earlier point in the group and anindividual group member’s perceptions of alliance to the group as a whole at a later point in the group.
