First written about in the 1930s, the common factor approach has a long history in the field of psychotherapy. While common factors are imbedded in scientific theory (Laska & Wampold 2014) they are often overlooked for the latest evidence-based practice manual to become available. The most well researched common factor, the therapeutic alliance, is one of the most critical elements of treatment. Therapeutic alliance, as supported by meta-analysis, is a significant predictor of therapy outcome. Alliance itself is comprised of several factors. In this presentation, the presenter will briefly explore the history of common factors and the therapeutic alliance. Participants will explore how clinicians can effectively develop a meaningful therapeutic alliance and the impact this has on treatment outcomes. The presenter will explore the unique factors to eating disorder and body image treatment through an alliance lens.
