Thompson, Chalmer E.; Jenal, Stephanie T.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v41 n4 p484-91 Oct 1994
Analyzed 24 dyadic interactions of black clients and white or black race-avoidant counselors in quasi-counseling sessions. Uncovered following core categories related to interactional quality: smooth, exasperated, constricted, and disjunctive. Categories were explained by whether and how client introduced race concerns, client racial identity perspectives, and client affiliation with counselor based on race. (Author/NB)
