The Alliance Between Us : - An Investigation into whether Clients' and Therapists' Estimation of Alliance Match (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen var att undersöka om klienters och terapeuters skattningar av allians stämmer överens, om det finns ett samband mellan allians och tillfredsställelse samt hur klienternas skattningar av tillfredsställelse (CSQ-8) står sig i jämförelse med ett normvärde. För att undersöka detta användes statistiska tester samt en kvalitativ tematisk analys. Studien kom fram till att det inte finns någon skillnad i skattning av allians som helhet mellan klienter och terapeuter, men att det finns en skillnad inom de olika dimensionerna. Det finns även ett samband mellan allians och tillfredsställelse, och en skillnad mellan klienter och ett normvärde skattat via Client Satisfaction Questionnaire-8 (CSQ-8). Teman som framkom kring förändring var: Relationsbyggande samspel, Lättnad, Icke-dömande. Slutsatserna är att allians skattas relativt lika mellan klient och terapeut, samt att det finns ett positivt samband mellan hög skattning av allians och hög skattning av tillfredsställelse. Slutligen finns det stöd för att studentterapin ger högre, eller åtminstone lika hög tillfredsställelse som annan psykiatrisk vård enligt en jämförelse mot normdata. Den tematiska analysen visar att terapin medfört stora förändringar i klienternas liv, och att det mesta verkar hänga ihop. Det belyser också hur viktigt det är med en personlig faktor i terapin.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to investigate whether clients' and therapists' estimation of alliance match, if there is a correlation between alliance and client satisfaction and if there is a difference between client satisfaction and a standard measure. Statistical analysis and a qualitative thematic analysis were used to examine this. Results show no difference between ratings of an alliance total between clients and therapists, except for when examining the different dimensions. There is a correlation between alliance and client satisfaction ratings. Also, there is a difference between client satisfaction questionnaire-8 (CSQ-8) ratings between the participants and a standard measure. Emerging themes about the change of therapy where: Relational establishing interaction, Relief and non-judgmental. Conclusions where made about the fact that alliance ratings did not differ between client and therapist, as well as the fact that there was a correlation between high ratings of alliance with high ratings of client satisfaction. Finally there was support for the conclusion that student therapy has higher, or at least an equally high ratings of satisfaction as other psychiatric care according to comparisons made with the standard measure. The thematic analysis shows that therapy brought on big changes in the clients life, changes that seem connected. They also show how important it is to have a more personal factor in therapy.
