Counselor Effectiveness As A Function of Varied Practicum Training Techniques.
Snyder, John F.; And Others
This study investigated the differential effects of various training techniques on the counselor effectiveness of beginning practicum students. It was hypothesized that there would be significant differences between the subjects pre- and post-test scores on both the Affective Sensitivity Scale (ASS) and on the Counselor Verbal Response Scale (CVRS) as a function of the type of training employed. Subjects were 12 students who were divided into three groups: (1) treatment group 1 (E1), (2) treatment group 2 (E2), (3) active control group (C-1). Training techniques used were: (1) individual supervision, (2) didactic group supervision, (3) process group supervision, and (4) stimulus films. Results show that: (1) group E1, which was the only group exposed to the films, showed a significant pre-post change; (2) group E2 showed the next greatest change, perhaps due to group process supervision which was present in groups E1 and E2, but not in group C-1.
