Client Attachment and Perceptions of the Working Alliance with Counselor Trainees
The relationships among 3 dimensions of client attachment (depend, anxiety, and close) and client ratings of the working alliance were examined in a sample of first-time clients (N = 60) seeking services through a university-based counseling clinic. Working alliance ratings were collected from all participants immediately after their 3rd counseling session with a counselor-in-training. A significant association was found between the depend dimension of attachment and client working alliance ratings.
