INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS--A REVIEW. UTAH STUDIES IN VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION.
JORGENSEN, GARY Q.; RUSHLAU, PERRY J.
THIS MONOGRAPH IS A REVIEW OF SELECTED LITERATURE IN THE AREA OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS, WHICH HAS RELEVANCE TO THE CLIENT-COUNSELOR INTERACTION. THE STUDIES HAVE BEEN TREATED WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF MCGRATH'S DESCRIPTIVE MODEL FOR INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THEORETICAL APPROACHES HAS YIELDED TWO LINES OF EVIDENCE CONCERNING CONVERGENCIES IN THE CONCEPTUALIZATION ON INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. THE FIRST IS THE TENDENCY TO CONCENTRATE ON DYADIC OR TRIADIC RELATIONSHIPS. THE SECOND IS AGREEMENT TO AN EXTENT ON THE SIGNIFICANT PARAMETERS OF INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. THROUGHOUT THE THEORETICAL AND EMPIRICAL STUDIES, THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT THE INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS ARE NOT MERELY A FUNCTION OF THE SIMPLE EFFECTS OF INDIVIDUAL VARIABLES. THEY ARE A FUNCTION OF THE COMPLEXLY INDEPENDENT ACTIONS OF MULTIPLE PSYCHOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL FORCES. PREDICTIVE CAPABILITIES OF THE STUDIES HAVE BEEN GREATEST WHEN THEIR DESIGNS HAVE INCORPORATED ASSUMPTIONS OF THE COMPLEX INTERDEPENDENCE OF VARIABLES. THEORETICAL PROPOSALS AND EXPERIMENTAL DATA SUGGEST DIRECTIONS FOR RESEARCH DEALING WITH THE INITIAL PHASE AND THE MAINTENANCE PHASE OF THE CLIENT-COUNSELOR RELATIONSHIP. A GENERAL CONCLUSION IS THAT THE COUNSELOR MUST BE AWARE OF HIMSELF NOT ONLY AS A PERCEIVER, BUT AS AN OBJECT OF PERCEPTION BY OTHERS AS WELL AS BY HIMSELF. (AO)
