Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe and analyse a common factor in therapeutic treatment and care – the relationship between therapist and client in treatment homes and especially which factors that effect this relationship. The study was conducted through qualitative method and four semi-structured interviews were held with therapists from four different treatment homes with different clientele. The main theoretical points of departure were both psychodynamic perspectives with the attachment theory by John Bowlby and humanistic perspectives with the client centred therapy developed by Carl Rogers. For analysing the transcribed interviews the method of sentence – categorization was used. The results of the study showed that a range of different factors effecting the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client where mentioned and discussed by the informants. A major finding was that the secure base is central for developing a deep connection with a client. Other important findings were that the therapist needs to be open and loving towards the client and in order to be that - to take care of his or her own emotional world and especially countertransference that may occur.
