Abstract [en]

This study reviews 19 randomized controlled trials examiningthe association between three relationship factors — participation,treatment involvement, and therapeutic relationship —and outcome of cognitive-behavioral anxiety treatments for childrenand adolescents. In 12 studies, parent participation was consideredas an independent variable compared to child-only participation.In three studies, parental involvement was measured. Child involvementwas measured in one study. The child's perception of the therapeuticrelationship was considered in three studies. Six studies founda significant positive effect of parent participation on diagnosticstatus, symptom level, or global functioning outcome measures.One study found a significant effect of parental involvementon global outcome measures. Another study found a significantpositive association between child involvement and symptom measuresand global functioning measures. No association was found betweenthe quality of the child's perception of the therapeutic relationshipand treatment outcome. Clinical implications are discussed.
