Does Authoritarian "Big Stick" Counseling Get Results With Unemployed Youth?
Jarvis, Donald L.
This study compared both the degree of authoritarianism exhibited by school counselors as compared to other helping gorups, and the extent to which authoritarian counselors were successful. The latter was determined by the number of youths who did find employment. The study found that school counselors were significantly more authoritarian than manpower counselors, social workers, and counselors from other settings. It found, furthermore, that the less authoritarian, more openminded counselors got better results in terms of employment success for their counselees, than did those who were more authoritarian. (NG)
