Peer and Professional Counselors: Prisoners' Preferences and Evaluations.
Cahill, Thomas J.; And Others
Criminal Justice and Behavior, v6 n4 p400-15 Dec 1979
Inquired into prisoners' preference for and evaluation of peer counselor inmates trained in counseling or professional counselors, through use of videotaped, simulated counseling vignettes. Barron's Ego Strength Scale was not a useful predictor of inmates' preference. Several subjects preferred professional counselors; however, this did not lead to more favorable evaluations.
