University Counseling Center Trainees' Perceptions of Their Training Experience. Research Report No. 8-88.
Abler, Rose M.; And Others
Ninety percent of trainees at a counseling center at a large eastern university were administered a 24-item questionnaire in the spring of 1987 to determine their feelings about assessment, supervision, and administrative procedures at the center. The subject pool included 37 persons. Questionnaires were completed anonymously. The majority of the trainees (72%) were working on doctorates, 55% in counseling psychology, and 17% in clinical psychology. The remaining 28% of the respondents were masters students in community counseling and counseling and personnel services. The great majority of trainees (94%) were carrying between two and three client hours per week. Overall, the trainees reported being quite satisfied with the administrative procedures at the center as well as the supervision they received. Physical space limitations constituted an area of dissatisfaction among the trainees. Most trainees indicated that they wanted more training in assessment techniques. (TJH)
