MARCILIO, Fabiane Cristina Pereira; DIAS, Ana Cristina Garcia; SILVA, Cláudia Sampaio Corrêa da  and  TEIXEIRA, Marco Antônio Pereira. Effects of the working alliance in career counseling. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.2, pp. 95-105. ISSN 1984-7270.

The working alliance has been widely investigated in psychotherapy, being associated with positive treatment outcomes. However, there is little research on career counseling. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between the alliance and outcome (completion or abandonment), satisfaction with care and the perceived effectiveness of the intervention. The participants were 37 former clients of a university career counseling service who responded retrospectively to instruments regarding the care received. The results showed that the alliance was associated with the conclusion outcome, satisfaction and a greater perception of intervention effectiveness. These findings reinforce the importance of considering the relational aspects of the process for the effectiveness of career counseling.

Keywords : therapeutic alliance; career counseling; vocational guidance; satisfaction.
