Zlotlow, Susan F.; Allen, George J.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v28 n3 p194-202 May 1981
Assessed the validity of examining the influence of counselors' physical attractiveness via observation of videotapes. Reactions to audio-only and video-only videotape segments were compared with in vivo contact. In vivo contact yielded more positive impressions than videotape observations. Technical skill was more predictive of counselor effectiveness than physical attractiveness. (Author/RC)
