Counseling for Change: A New Perspective.
Holt, Pete R.; And Others
Three Internal-External (I-E) locus of control counseling techniques were used in regular counseling sessions to determine whether these techniques would result in a control expectancy shift from external to internal. Twenty-seven Ss were counseled in 4 groups for five weeks, twice each week in groups, and once each week individually by 4 counselors. Seventeen Sc participated in non-counseling sessions. Results showed that 2 groups who were led by counselors judged to have used IE counseling techniques did experience a significant control expectancy shift as opposed to 2 non-IE counseled groups (t = 2.4, p less than .02) and all non counseled groups (2.5, p less than .02). There was no significant difference between non counseled and non-IE counseled (t = .11, p greater than .05). Counselors varied in their I-E technique preference but agreed that techniques are useful counseling tools. (Author)
