Ole Karkov Østergård, Hilde Randa, Esben Hougaard
OBJECTIVE: The aims of the study were to evaluate the effects of using the Partners for Change Outcome Management System (PCOMS) in psychotherapy and to explore potential moderators of the effect. METHOD: A comprehensive literature search including grey literature was conducted to identify controlled outcome studies on the PCOMS, randomized (RCTs), or non-randomized trials (N-RCT). RESULTS: The literature search identified 18 studies, 14 RCTs, and four N-RCTs, including altogether 2910 participants...

Sibel Halfon, Geoff Goodman, Pelinsu Bulut
OBJECTIVE: The first aim of this study was to identify interaction structures (IS), which refer to clusters of items characterizing the course of psychotherapy in terms of reciprocal interaction patterns between the therapist and the child, secondly to assess their trends over the course of treatment, and finally investigate which IS predict outcome in long-term psychodynamic child psychotherapy. METHOD: The sample included 52 children with externalizing and internalizing problems...

OBJECTIVE: Evidence is inconclusive on whether variability in alliance ratings within or between therapists is a better predictor of treatment outcome. The objective of the present study was to explore between and within patient and therapist variability in alliance ratings, reciprocity among them, and their significance for treatment outcome. METHOD: A large primary care psychotherapy sample was used. Patient and therapist ratings of the working alliance at session three and patient ratings of psychological distress pre-post were used for analyses...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the relationship between psychotherapy outcome and trajectory variables measured during the first five treatment sessions. METHOD: In a psychotherapy training clinic, 158 patients completed a measure of symptomatic distress at each visit during treatment lasting a median 30 sessions. We investigated outcome predictions based on symptomatic distress at intake, change in distress between the first and fifth sessions, and intersession shifts...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to test whether the therapeutic alliance mediated the relationship between previously identified predictors of premature termination and dropout during the first three sessions of treatment. METHOD: In this naturalistic study, 994 cases receiving individual, couple and family, or high-conflict coparenting therapy provided demographic information and completed assessments prior to treatment. Following the first session, clients completed a measure of the therapeutic alliance...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated associations between couples' interpersonal behavior, depressive symptoms, and relationship distress over the course of couple psychotherapy. METHOD: After every other session of Integrative Systemic Therapy (M = 13 sessions), N = 100 individuals within 50 couples rated their in-session affiliation and autonomy behavior using the circumplex-based Structural Analysis of Social Behavior Intrex. Concurrent and prospective associations of interpersonal behavior with depressive symptoms and relationship distress were evaluated via multivariate multilevel modeling using the Actor-Partner Interdependence Model...

OBJECTIVE: Little is known about how therapy processes relate to outcome in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for panic disorder (PD). This study examined whether client resistance predicts CBT for PD outcomes beyond the effects of established pre-treatment predictors. A secondary aim was to assess the consistency of resistance over treatment. METHOD: Data were from 71 adults participating in up to 24 biweekly sessions of CBT in a randomized controlled trial. Panic severity was assessed before, during (at Weeks 1, 5, and 9), and at termination of treatment (Week 12) using the Panic Disorder Severity Scale...

OBJECTIVE: Striking the balance between creating challenge through confrontation (drawing attention to discrepancies) to encourage change and offering support through the therapeutic relationship to ensure safety for patients represents a central issue for psychotherapists. The aim of the present study was to assess immediate effects of confrontations by therapists on the therapeutic alliance. METHOD: We rated video recordings of 77 therapies to measure incidences of alliance ruptures/resolution attempts as well as confrontations by therapists...

Tim Kaiser, Anton-Rupert Laireiter
BACKGROUND: the typical mode of assessment in studies on intersession processes (ISP) in psychotherapy is using cross-sectional or weekly measurements. Daily dynamics of intersession processes have not yet been studied. METHOD: intersession process data from 22 ambulatory psychotherapy cases were collected in a naturalistic study with high temporal resolution, resulting in a total of 1026 daily measurements. Multilevel vector autoregressive (VAR) modelling was applied to discover the temporal course and causal influences among intersession processes...

OBJECTIVE: Dropout is one factor that might limit the effectiveness of interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT). Improved understanding of IPT dropout is an important research priority. This meta-analysis examined dropout rates from IPT in randomized controlled trials. METHOD: Seventy-two trials met inclusion criteria. RESULTS: The weighted mean dropout rate from IPT was 20.6% (95% CI = 17.4-24.2). Dropout rates were similar for depressive (20...

OBJECTIVE: Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by immature defense mechanisms. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an effective treatment for BPD. However, understanding the underlying mechanisms of change is still limited. Using a transtheoretical framework, we investigated the effect of DBT skills training on defense mechanisms. METHOD: In this randomized controlled trial, 16 of 31 BPD outpatients received DBT skills training adjunctive to individual treatment as usual (TAU), while the remaining 15 received only individual TAU...

METHOD: We used consensual qualitative research (CQR) to investigate the experiences of therapist trainees who had a rupture with a client. RESULTS: Of 21 trainees who were tracked weekly, 14 experienced a rupture and were interviewed 1 week after the rupture and again 2 weeks later about antecedents, repair attempts, and consequences. Trainees typically reported experiencing tension at the beginning of the rupture session and difficult emotions during the rupture (e...

OBJECTIVE: We conducted a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of bona fide psychotherapy for adults with eating disorders (EDs). METHOD: Thirty-five RCTs with 54 direct comparisons were included. The majority of RCTs included participants with bulimia nervosa and/or binge-ED, while only two RCTs included participants with anorexia nervosa, and three RCTs included participants with an ED not otherwise specified. RESULTS: There was a clear advantage of bona fide psychotherapy over wait-list controls...

OBJECTIVE: Although patients and therapists aligning over time on their perceptions of alliance quality is regarded as clinically important, few studies have examined the influence of such dyadic convergence on psychotherapy outcomes. This study tested whether early treatment convergence in patient-therapist alliance ratings was associated with subsequent worry and distress reduction in psychotherapy for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), and whether treatment type and the dyad members' initial alliance perceptions moderated these associations...

OBJECTIVE: Early change in psychotherapy predicts outcome. Seven studies have used growth mixture modeling [GMM; Muthén, B. (2001). Second-generation structural equation modeling with a combination of categorical and continuous latent variables: New opportunities for latent class-latent growth modeling. In L. M. Collins & A. G. Sawyers (Eds.), New methods for the analysis of change (pp. 291-322). Washington, DC: American Psychological Association] to identify patient classes based on early change but have yielded conflicting results...
