Counseling in Probation and Parole: A Research Report. Final Report.
Marx, George L.; And Others
Individual and group counseling treatment modes were used by the Probation Office of District Court of the District of Columbia to ascertain whether clients with a particular personality responded more to one treatment plan than to another. In the first of two related counseling experiments, data from four personality instruments were analyzed for 87 clients who were randomly assigned to two groups. For the second experiment, 122 clients were assigned to individual counseling, group counseling, or the control group. The results of the experiments showed that it was not feasible to assign clients to a particular treatment mode based upon personality traits. Statistical data, a client progress form, and a bibliography are appended. (BC)
