Abstract and Keywords

Therapy process research investigates what happens in therapy sessions and how these interactions influence outcomes. Therapy process research employs an array of methodologies but has recently used clinical trials as a platform for investigating process—outcome relations. This chapter serves as a resource for performing and interpreting therapy process research conducted within clinical trials. Issues related to designing, conducting, and evaluating therapy process research are reviewed, with examples drawn from the child therapy literature to illustrate key concepts. The chapter concludes with suggested future research directions.

Keywords: Alliance, therapeutic interventions, treatment integrity, therapy process, outcome
