The Effects of Professional Counselor Training on Empathy: Continued Cause for Concern
Bath, Kent E.; Calhoun, Robert O.
Counselor Education and Supervision, 17, 2, 98-104, Dec 77
The evidence reviewed, especially that from the most methodologically sound studies, indicates that professional training in counseling generally fails to increase trainees' empathy. Further, professional status may establish social distance between counselor and client, and posttraining experience in counseling cannot be counted on to have uniformly positive, empathy-enhancing effects.
