Differential Variables in the Selection of Clients.
Sperry, Len
The age old question about what it is that constitutes a "good" candidate for counseling has yet to be answered satisfactorily. A number of stereotyped notions and rules-of-thumb criteria have been proliferated over the years, sometimes to the detriment of certain types of clients. On the other hand, a growing body of research is available to both the researcher and the practitioner. A central theme of this article is that some rule-of-thumb schemas, such as YAVIS, do not stand upwell against the available research data. This article reviews and summarizes research on the following variables: age; marital status; sex; social class; expectancy; intelligence; sensory modality; cognitive style; level of education; level of moral development; motivation; readiness; similarity to counselor; diagnosis; and severity of adjustment.
