Swank, Jacqueline M.; Ohrt, Jonathan H.; Robinson, E. H. Mike
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, v52 n1 p23-38 Apr 2013
Empathy is essential to the therapeutic relationship (Rogers, 1957). Altruism appears to be related to empathy, but there has been limited research investigating its development in counselors. This qualitative study explored the development of altruism as perceived by 19 counseling students. The authors discuss the findings and implications for counselor education.
