Student Awareness of the University of Utah Counseling Center. Research Report 25.; Client's Counseling Evaluation Inventory Ratings of Counselors and Academic Recovery Through Structured Group Counseling. Research Report 23.
Heaps, Richard A.; And Others
Paper one discusses client ratings of counselors based on the Counseling Evaluation Inventory, and academic recovery through structured group counseling. Conclusions suggest that counseling success varies as a function of counselor comfort, and that counselors tend to become more comfortable with experience. Consequently, experienced counselors tend to be more effective to the extent that their experience is accompanied by perceived comfort with their involvement in a particular counseling context. The second paper presents a study designed to investigate awareness of the Counseling Center, as perceived by University of Utah students. It was found that about one quarter of the student sample were totally unfamiliar with the Center, and that whether students had been to and/or heard of the Center was related to their perception of the Center's service function. Study results strongly point to the need for greater student awareness of the Center's function. (Author/KJ)
