Abstract

In this study we investigated whether the relationship between differentiation levels and therapeutic alliance was mediated by an internal locus of control. Data from 107 couples from a University Couple and Family Therapy clinic were analyzed. An Actor-Partner mediational model using Structural Equation Modeling will be used to account for interdependence of the dyadic data.
