Padula, Marjorie A.; Conoley, Collie W.; Garbin, Calvin P.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v76 n4 p442-51 Fall 1998
Major dimensions affecting clients' acceptance of loneliness-counseling interventions are investigated, and results compared with theoretically posited dimensions. Data were collected from university students (N=241) who sorted interventions for similarity. Four dimensions of interventions resulted: (1) type of activity; (2) counselor/client relationship; (3) difficulty; (4) intervention/problem fit. (Author/EMK)
