The Effect of Self and In Vivo Desensitization on Counselor Trainee Anxiety and Performance.
Miller, Thomas V.
The rationale, planning and implementing of this research is discussed in terms of its three hypotheses: (1) that both self desensitization and in vivo desensitization would result in lower Fear Index and Anxiety Differential scores of counselor trainees just prior to communicating with a role playing client in a counseling room where they are observed by their supervisors; (2) that in vivo desensitization would be more effective than self desensitization for reducing anxiety in the situation described; and (3) that both treatment groups would have higher performance scores on certain performance evaluation criteria than the control group. None of these hypotheses were supported. Possible explanations and data on subject variables are discussed. (TL)
