Abstract

A total of 143 clients and their case managers in a Veterans Affairs (VA) intensive case management program modeled on the Program for Assertive Community Treatment rated their therapeutic alliance after two years in the program. Strong case-manager-rated alliance was associated with reduced symptom severity and improved global functioning as rated by independent assessors; it was also associated with higher client ratings of community living skills and more positive outcome as perceived by both clients and case managers. Strong client- rated alliance was associated only with more positive client-perceived outcome. Alliance ratings were not associated with use of inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. The case manager-client alliance appears to be a significant component of therapeutic effectiveness.
