Applying Statistical Control Theory to Bring Together Clinical Supervision and Psychotherapy Research.
Iberg, James R.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v59 n4 p575-86 Aug 1991
Designed three-factor experiment to evaluate potential for improving first-session performance of six trainee-therapists as measured by postsession client ratings (n=48). Rather than through standardizing therapist behavior by using training manual beforehand, therapist effects were handled through statistical control. Found that more frequent empathic responses led to statistically significant beneficial effects on five of seven outcome measures. (Author/NB)
