Summary or Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of administering objective personality testing and providing feedback about the test results to the clients. Specifically, the study was designed to look at these effects on the working alliance in psychotherapy. Horvath's (1982) Working Alliance Inventory (WAI) was the instrument used to measure these effects. The Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-II (MCMI-II) was used to represent objective personality testing. The design was a randomized block design with therapists as random blocks. Seventy-seven adult clients participating in individual therapy were randomly assigned to one of three treatment conditions: (a) testing without shared feedback, (b) testing with feedback regarding the test results, and (c) a control group with neither testing nor feedback. The random assignment was done separately for each therapist. Neither testing nor feedback was confirmed as a statistically significant factor affecting the working alliance after the first or third session. However, the clients in the testing groups had a significantly greater positive change in working alliance scores between the first and third sessions than those clients who were not tested. Although not a primary focus of this study, statistical analysis showed that differences among therapists explained statistically significant variability in the working alliance scores. The therapist effects were present even after controlling for therapist site, theoretical orientation, and licensure status. The dissertation concludes with a chapter about the implications of these findings..
