Abstract

This study aims to clarify how therapist competence/adherence relates to client characteristics, consumer satisfaction, and dropout rates for family interventions for schizophrenia. As hypothesized, less severe psychiatric symptoms and lower ratings of family difficulty were related to greater therapist competence/ adherence in several non-specific and treatment specific domains of treatment. Aspects of greater competence/adherence were also related to lower dropout rates and higher consumer satisfaction. Contrary to expectations, general emotional distress and family cohesion were not related to competence/adherence. This study suggests that clinicians and researchers may want to take client characteristics into account when evaluating therapist performance and choosing clients who are most suitable for therapy.
