Relation between Counselors' Use of Intentions and Clients' Perception of Working Alliance.
Kivlighan, Dennis M., Jr.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v37 n1 p27-32 Jan 1990
Examined the relation between counselor intention use and client-rated working alliance. Analyzed ratings of client interpersonal attitudes, client-rated working alliance, and counselor intention use. Major finding was that counselor intention use accounted for moderate proportion of variance in client-rated working alliance. Specific counselor intentions (assessment, explore, support) were negatively related to strength of working alliance. (Author/PVV)
