Do Participants in Counseling, Clinical, and Rehabilitation Programs Differ in Their Beliefs About Human Nature.
Dole, Arthur A.; And Others
Some 176 graduate students in counseling psychology, clinical psychology, and vocational rehabilitation counseling programs were studied to determine their philosophies of human nature. Concurrently 70 program directors indicated what they wanted their students to believe. On Philosophies of Human Nature scales, the students tended to have a neutral although slightly favorable attitude toward other persons and to endorse complexity and variability. Analysis of variance indicated no significant effect of program affiliation. On an Aspirations Inventory, the program directors generally preferred that their students held a moderate, neutral view of human nature, but disagreed by program about individual differences . It was concluded that by and large participants in these mental health subspecialities do share common ground in their beliefs about man. (Author)
