Abstract

The concept of "research alliance" is introduced to describe the relationship between a psychiatric researcher and his subject in which the aim is to obtain valid data in a limited number of interviews. The authors describe three possible difficulties in establishing such an alliance: detachment, seduction, and resistance, but conclude on the basis of their experience in a longitudinal research project with teenagers that through careful structuring of interviews a meaningful relationship can be established that will help realize research goals.
