The Effects of Modeling, Experimenter Generated Performance Feedback, and Self-Generated Performance Feedback on the Production of a Basic Counseling Skill.
Robinson, Sharon E.; And Others
This project studied the counselor training of reflection of feelings. The independent variables were method of instruction; order of assessment stimuli presentation; and assessment stimuli. There were four methods of instruction: model plus expert performance feedback, model plus self-generated cued performance feedback, modeling only, and instructions only. The two forms of assessment stimuli were Client Vignettes, a series of 16 videotaped actors roleplaying typical college concerns; and Simulated Client, a client discussing in-depth her personal concerns. A sample of 56 master's degree students in counseling and guidance served as subjects. Each subject was randomly assigned to one of the four instructional groups. Subject performance was rated from transcribed audiotaped responses to both forms of assessment stimuli. The dimensions of response analyzed were frequency of produced reflection of feeling responses, feeling appropriateness, content relevance, content interpretation, delivery succinctness, and delivery smoothness. The results indicate that the addition of a feedback phase to a modeling phase does enhance performance of accurate reflection of feeling statements. The influence of expert and self-generated cued performance feedback seems equivalent. (Author)
