Microcounseling: Clients' Attitudes Toward Tests.
Miller, C. Dean; And Others
A microcounseling approach was used to conduct a study of an experimental training program. The objective was to train naive college students, who were interested in counseling, to assess clients' attitudes toward guidance tests. A correlation of .797 was obtained between clients' ratings of attitudes toward tests and the trainees' ratings of clients' attitudes toward tests. Findings were consistent with the results of other microcounseling studies. Individual differences among the trainees were noted and comparisons were made between trainees' own ratings, judges' ratings, and clients' ratings of trainees. The effect of supervisors using extensive positive verbal reinforcement was discussed. (Author)
