Predicting Counselor Effectiveness: A Multiple Regression Approach.
Mendoza, Buena Flor H.
This study attempted to determine whether counselor effectiveness designated by a high level of performance in a first counseling practicum as ranked by faculty supervisors, can be predicted with a knowledge of the extent to which the individual possesses the personal qualities of open-mindedness, tolerance for ambiguity, general mental health, and personal-social interest. Subjects were 71 students (graduate) enrolled in the Counseling and Personnel Services curriculum at Western Michigan University. The Rokeach Dogmatism Scale (RDS) was used to test for open-mindedness; the Berkeley Public Opinion Questionnaire (Berkeley POQ) for tolerance; Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) for general mental health; and the Strong Vocational Interest Blank (SVIB) for personal-social interest. Peer Group Ranking (PGR) was also used. Conclusions include: (1) strong predictive potential of PGR, (2) the relationship between open-mindedness, tolerance, personal-social interest, general mental health and effective counseling was found to be positive but insignificant.
