Abstract

The therapeutic relationship is a concept often ignored in current literature. As such, the importance of good patient rapport may be overlooked. To address these concerns, the following paper highlights the effects that strong therapeutic relationships may have on patient satisfaction, treatment compliance and client outcomes. Strategies that practitioners can employ to facilitate the development of good patient rapport are also discussed.
