Counselor Predicate Usage and Communication Proficiency on Ratings of Counselor Empathic Understanding.
Goldin, Eugene; Doyle, Robert E.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v30 n3 p212-24 Mar 1991
Investigated effects of predicate usage, facilitative skill level, and participant sex on ratings of empathic understanding. After listening to one of four audiotapes utilizing different counselor response modes, subjects (n=225) evaluated counselor empathy. Findings suggest that counselor communication skill level seems to be more important than matching of predicates in ratings of empathic understanding. (Author/PVV)
