Abstract (Swedish)
The present study examined the relationship between perceived speechtime,

Results showed that there was no relationship between perceived speech-time and alliance. A difference between alliance and gender was on the other hand found. Males were more likely to rate themselves as having a good alliance with the therapist than were females. The present study provides us with a better theoretical understanding of why people leave therapy. To reduce attrition rates it may be important for therapists to focus more on
creating a good alliance with female clients than with male clients, as
well as to consider any gender differences in the therapeutic process. (Less)
