The Effects of Sex and Status of Models on the Acquisition of Counseling Behaviors.
Field, Timothy F.
This research investigated the effects of sex and status of models on the acquisition of counseling behaviors by beginning students in counseling. Video tape was employed in both the presentation of models to the subjects, and in obtaining the criterion measure. The specific counseling behaviors (modeling tape) were developed during the course of the research, and the criterion measure is reflective of those behaviors. The research task was to measure the imitation by subjects of counseling behaviors which were performed by models while varying the sex and status variables of the models. Results showed that the amount of behaviors acquired by the subjects was not significantly altered from exposure to modeling with respect to the status variable of the model. Similarly, the sex model variable made no significant difference in the amount of behaviors acquired by the subjects. (Author/RK)
