Counseled vs. Non-Counseled One Year Later.
Thompson, Donald L.; Tseng, M. S.
This report is a followup evaluation of a study on differences between adolescents who seek counseling and those who do not. The primary purpose of this followup study was to determine if the differences found in the original study continue to exist and also to determine if any discernable effects of counseling could be found. Subjects were divided into three groups: C1 (those who sought counseling from the first study); C2 (those who sought counseling after the first study); and NC (those from the first study who had not sought counseling). Several tests were administered, including: (1) the North-Hatt Occupational Prestige Scale; (2) Rosenberg's Self-Esteem Scale; and (3) McClelland's Achievement Thematic Apperception Test. Findings suggest several possibilities. Since C2 showed the greatest change, perhaps the initial impact of counseling is the greatest in producing change. Group C1 showed little change on any of the variables. Group NC showed no significant changes on any of the variables. (KJ)
