The Working Alliance

Research has shown that the strength of the working alliance predicts improvement and better outcomes. In fact studies indicate the strength of the alliance may sometimes be more important than the type of treatment practiced. This core standard looks at what the working alliance is, how it is assessed and how it can be strengthened. It considers its central role in intellectual disability, both with the person and their families, and also with support staff. Practitioners also learn a helpful way to measure the working alliance.
