Recent Developments in Effective and Accountable Approaches to Counseling Research.
Vivell, Susan; And Others
Six studies are summarized in which repeatable methods were tested in quasi-experimental settings to test hypotheses relating to a cognitive approach to counseling. In each study, a repeatable mode of counseling was developed, research counselors were trained to a high level of competence, their performance was validated by tape recordings, dependent variables were measures of psychological stress and behavior patterns, and changes in experimental subjects were compared to control subjects. The studies point up several problems which are probably unsolvable with conventional methods. In producing significant changes with different problems and populations, these studies have identified specific weaknesses in traditional methods of counseling research and suggest a means for solving them.
