Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v41 n4 p278-92 Jun 1998
Adults with disabilities (N=60) viewed videotapes portraying client-counselor reactions to examine the influence of counselor disability status and counselor reputation. A significant effect was found for counselor disability status. Counselors without a disability received higher ratings. There was no effect for reputation, and no interaction was found between disability status and reputation. (Author/MKA)
