Manipulation of Expectancies about Counseling and Psychotherapy: Review and Analysis of Expectancy Manipulation Strategies and Results.
Tinsley, Howard E. A.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v35 n1 p99-108 Jan 1988
Reviews investigations attempting to manipulate clients' expectations for counseling or psychotherapy. Describes and evaluates six strategies used in attempting expectancy manipulation, none with significant success. Audiotaped and videotaped interventions proved most effective, verbal interactions ineffective, and printed documents of dubious effect. Actual experience in counseling sessions influenced clients' expectancies. Recommends identification of conditions promoting expectancy changes. (Author/KS)
