Author information

  • 1Boston University, MA 02215, USA.


Achieving effectiveness of psychotherapy across a diversity of patients continues to be a foremost concern, and the therapy alliance remains a critical component of such favorable outcome across theoretical orientations and treatment formats. This article offers concrete guidance grounded in empirical research on therapist behaviors and treatment features to enhance collaboration in multicultural therapy. This is followed by a multicultural case study of a patient presenting with several co-morbid disorders to exemplify the application of these guidelines over the course of therapy.
