Looking at the very broad view of the clinical cognitive theory, the paper purposes some reflections on what are the active ingredients that lead to change during psychotherapy: reference is made to some of the major theoretical contributions, such as the Attachment Theory, the Control Mastery Theory and the Dialectical Model- Behavior. In recent years, all these theories have contributes to change the role of the cognitive therapist transforming him from a mere facilitator of change to a real "actor" who is active in the therapeutic process, allowing the expansion of strategies and intervention techniques integrating and strengthening them thanks to the phenomena observed in the therapeutic relationship. At this point the history of patient, his social skills and his motivational attitude help consistently the therapist in achieving the agreed goals through a renewed and more effective intrinsic motivation to care.
Keywords: Therapeutic Relationship; Adherence to Treatment; Interpersonal Cycles; Motivation; Change.
