Abstract
This preliminary study aims to analyze the therapeutic alliance in a crosscultural
triadic setting, where there is a therapist and a client who speak a
different language but are able to interact thanks to an interpreter/cultural
mediator. The participants' (therapists, clients, interpreters) representations
associated with the notion of therapeutic alliance, and the level of alliance
between each group was obtained and compared. Clients (N = 9) were all
from Albanese origin. The results show that the three groups of participants
give particular meanings to the alliance and tend to evaluate their alliance
level differently. The interpreter's mediating role in the construction of the
therapeutic alliance is discussed.
