The aim of the study was to examine whether clients' attachment styles and their perception of therapist empathy and working alliance predicted therapeutic rupture revelation, resolution, repair and leaving therapy after rupture. Data for 108 participants, who had experienced rupture, were collected using an on-line cross-sectional survey. Logistic and multinomial modelling showed that higher empathy and working alliance ratings, but not attachment style, were associated with a higher likelihood of rupture resolution, repair and slaying in therapy after rupture. None of these variables predicted rupture revelation. The implications for rupture resolution and therapist training are discussed.
