Clarify the determinants of the construction of a Therapeutic Alliance (AT) between paramedical staff (nurses and caregivers ) and adult patients in a functional unit of full-time general psychiatric Whether the quality of Therapeutic Alliance influences the continued support outpatient , after completion of full-time hospitalization.


This is a prospective, observational, multicenter inpatient units Parisian full time of the Etablissement Public Health White House (spread over 4 sites).

The study seeks to collect, on the one hand the level of AT obtained at the end of hospitalization in general adult psychiatry and, secondly, to understand how this one was built.

The AT will be measured:

- Firstly by the self-administered questionnaire STAR-P, translated into French by the "translation / back-translation" method.

- Secondly through semi-structured qualitative interviews, conducted at discharge by a health care setting or a specially trained and who did not participate directly in the patient's care included. Indeed, the questionnaires allow, through scales to measure the AT quantitative way through proposals (items) presented as so, and look for associations with some predefined decisive.

However, it is difficult to explore more complex combination of mechanisms. Conducting interviews can meet this goal. An interview grid will be conducted and organized around the search for representations and affects related relational patient / nurse(s) and caregiver(s) in the context of hospital care. The interviews will be recorded and fully transcribed. A thematic analysis will be conducted to identify the objects and themes. The inclusions in this qualitative analysis will stop when reaching the saturation process. In this type of study, it is generally necessary to include thirty people to reach saturation.

Finally, semi-structured group interviews (focus group) will be conducted by co-investigators and doctoral student psychologist caregivers with the discussion topic imposed: the AT construction. They will be directed to paramedics caregivers (nurses and caregivers) are not part of the investigation team conducting research but actively involved in care. Their goal will be to harvest their representations regarding the quality of the therapeutic relationship they're trying to build with patients. A focus group will be conducted by site (4 sites), with 5 to 12 volunteers per group.
