Clinical Judgmental Biases: The Moderating Roles of Counselor Cognitive Complexity and Counselor Client Preferences.
Spengler, Paul M.; Strohmer, Douglas C.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v41 n1 p8-17 Jan 1994
Study of 119 counseling psychologists revealed that counselor individual differences in cognitive complexity, but not preferences for client problems, moderated cognitive processes that lead to bias in clinical judgment. Counseling psychologists with lower cognitive complexity were more likely to form biased clinical judgments than were those with higher cognitive complexity. (Author/NB)
