Use of Counselor Discriminative Stimuli as An Intervention in Effecting Change in Client Outcomes.
The paper presents a model of counseling outcomes which distinguishes between within-interview change and extra-interview change in order to identify and study the counselor behaviors which constitute strategies or techniques. The author feels that research must: 1.) assess the relative productivity of these behaviors within-strategies in terms of client change within the counseling setting and 2.) clarify how these within-interview outcomes may be used by the client as tools or strategies with which he can operate upon his environment. Another salient feature of this research is its implication for the training of counselors, bringing into focus the relationship between the counselor's behavior and the outcomes of counseling. The author stresses the continuing challenge of relating specific counselor behaviors to the client's improved functioning in his environment. References are included. (Author/SES)
