Different Views of Love: Deductive and Inductive Inquiry and the Implications of Research Findings for Counseling.
Thompson, Bruce; Borrello, Gloria M.
The fact that love is so fundamental to the human experience and can affect clients in so many ways suggests that counselors may frequently encounter clients seeking assistance with problems involving love, and that counselors may consequently be interested in scientific inquiry regarding the nature and experience of love. This paper reviews two distinct scenarios of inquiry (deductive and inductive) regarding the nature of love. Findings of the two scenarios are summarized, and references include citations for the related studies. Selected seminal readings of potential interest to counselors are also identified and briefly annotated. (Author/TE)
