The Relationship of Counselor Attitudes to Training and Experience.
Lambert, Michael J.; Finley, Robert E.
The Test of Counselor Attitudes (Porter) was administered to five groups representing different levels of counselor training and experience. Significant differences were found between the groups on all five of the counselor attitudes meased: (1) evaluative; (2) interpretive; (3) understanding; (4) supportive; and (5) probing. As students receive more training, it was found that they demonstrate attitudes that are less evaluative, probing and supportive, and more understanding and interpretive. The results are discussed in terms of their congruence with approaches to counseling. Several cautions for interpreting the results are noted. (Author/TL)
