A STUDY OF TWO TYPES OF INTERNSHIPS FOR COUNSELOR TRAINING. FINAL REPORT.
BLOCHER, DONALD H.
TWO TYPES OF COUNSELING PROGRAMS WERE COMPARED BY RANDOM ASSIGNMENT OF 30 COUNSELORS TO TWO PRACTICUM TREATMENTS. FIFTEEN COUNSELORS RECEIVED 60 HOURS OF COUNSELING EXPERIENCE CONCENTRATED INTO THE LAST 3 MONTHS OF A YEAR-LONG TRAINING PROGRAM. ANOTHER 15 RECEIVED 60 HOURS DISTRIBUTED IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS. SUPERVISING STAFF AND METHODS OF INSTRUCTION WERE IDENTICAL FOR BOTH. TRAINING OUTCOMES OF THE TWO TREATMENTS WERE MEASURED USING A SET OF RATING SCALES DEVELOPED TO MEASURE FIVE THEORETICALLY RELEVANT CONSTRUCTS OF THE COUNSELING PROCESS, AS WELL AS OVERALL PERFORMANCE IN THE INTERVIEW. THESE SCALES WERE FOUND TO BE USABLE WITH INTERJUDGE RELIABILITIES OF .90. PREDICTIVE VALIDITIES FOR PREDICTING PRACTICUM GRADE FROM PREPRACTICUM INTERVIEWS WERE ABOUT .60. THESE RATING SCALES WERE USED TO EVALUATE 16MM SOUND MOTION PICTURE FILMS OF COUNSELING INTERVIEWS DONE ON COMPLETION OF PRACTICUM TREATMENTS BY BOTH GROUPS. ONE-WAY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE TESTS ON ALL FIVE CONSTRUCTS AND OVERALL INTERVIEW PERFORMANCE SCORES WERE RUN FOR ALL 30 COUNSELORS. NO TREATMENT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND BETWEEN GROUPS ON ANY OF THE VARIABLES. ANALYSIS WAS ALSO MADE OF THE NONVERBAL INTERVIEW BEHAVIOR OF COUNSELORS USING 17 BEHAVIOR CATEGORIES. TEN CATEGORIES DISCRIMINATED SIGNIFICANTLY BETWEEN HIGH- AND LOW-RATED COUNSELORS. (PS)
