This paper aims to evaluate the role and the impact of Interdisciplinarity on the relational models of intervention in the doctor-patient communication. Working Alliance may be one of the main models for the improvement of the relationship between the dyad, analysing the degree of the patient involvement in treatment and his alignment to the purposes of therapy itself. However, to tap into this construct, the performed kind of operation is similar to a specific form of Interdisciplinarity, Theoretical Interdisciplinarity. Theoretical ID begins from an exploration based on the practice, which respects an otherness not only physical (the doctor-patient relationship), but above all, conceptual (the doctor-patient system).
