Abstract

In this study, the (a) association of the client- and therapist-rated strength of the real relationship to theoutcome of brief psychotherapy, and (b) extent to which the real relationship predicted outcome aboveand beyond the predictive power of the working alliance were examined. A total of 50 clients at thecounseling center of a university in Italy received brief therapy and completed measures before treatment,after the third session, and at the end of treatment. From the clients’ perspective, both the Genuinenesselement of the real relationship and the Bond scale of the working alliance were found to relatesignificantly to treatment outcome. When we examined the real relationship and working alliance aspredictors in a hierarchical regression format, the client-rated real relationship, especially the Genuinenesselement, did predict outcome and, moreover, added significantly and substantially to the workingalliance in predicting outcome. Neither the strength of the real relationship from the therapist’sperspective nor the therapist-rated working alliance was found to relate to outcome. The findings arediscussed in the context of methodological differences with other investigations of the real relationship.
