Therapeutic Alliance

To provide optimal treatment outcomes, Adaptive Strategies’ therapists strive to achieve the greatest possible therapeutic alliance with their clients. 

A sound working alliance is consistently identified as one of the most important factors influencing successful treatment outcomes.

Therapeutic alliances can be defined as the quality of the collaborative working relationship between client and therapist, and may include three elements: Bonds, Goals, and Tasks.


Bonds are constituted by the core conditions of therapy, the client’s attitude toward the therapist, and the therapist’s style of relating to the client.


Goals are the mutually negotiated, understood, agreed upon, and regularly reviewed aims of therapy.


Tasks are activities carried out by both the client and the therapist.
