Alliance and Suicide Prevention Lab

Developmental Differences in Therapeutic Process Project

Project Overview

In collaboration with the University of South Florida Psychological Services Center, the "Clinic Study" is an ongoing project to create a reliable observational coding system for the constructs of therapist engagement interventions, therapeutic alliance, and treatment participation across different developmental periods. Our resources currently include videotaped therapy sessions, demographic data, as well as pre- and post- outcome measure for child and adolescent participants treated for emotional and behavioural problems. The creation of the coding manual is currently in progress.
