The research of process and outcome in psychotherapy has understood the therapeutic bond as the main cause of change in psychotherapy. There is currently no psychotherapeutic not recognize the role of the therapeutic bond in successful therapy. In this paper we review the evolution of the concept of therapeutic bond, to understand how it has become established as a focus of study in psychology. In addition, we propose a conceptualization of the therapeutic bond, as distinguished from the concept of therapeutic alliance and transference phenomena, both influential in the entire therapeutic process and which emerge, along with the therapeutic bond, simultaneously and intertwined. Finally, we will review the understanding of therapeutic bond in psychoanalytic therapy and alterations or therapeutic bond attacks, which seems relevant to know to prevent any movement during the process that preclude the achievement of therapeutic goals.
