Improving Counselor Effectiveness by Means of Feedback and Encouragement.
Eckstein, Daniel G.
This study investigated the use of feedback and encouragement in improving counselor effectiveness. Clients judged their counselors significantly higher than did expert raters. However, a significant correlation occured between the client and rater opinions concerning helpful counselors. Counselors receiving feedback based on client-rater evaluations and also obtaining encouragement to plan and implement alternative behaviors improved significantly more on their pre-post total scores than did a matched control group of counselors. All counselors improved their client-rater scores as a result of a supervised practicum experience. Implications and suggestions for counselor supervisors are included. (Author)
