The Master Therapist: Ideal Character or Clinical Fiction? Comments and Questions on Jennings and Skovholt's "The Cognitive, Emotional, and Relational Characteristics of Master Therapists."
Orlinsky, David E.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v46 n1 p12-15 Jan 1999
Reacts to Jennings and Skovholt's (1999) study on master therapists. Discusses the lack of clear definition of master therapist, lack of meaningful comparison groups needed to infer the distinctive characteristics of master therapists, the incomplete communication of data-analytic procedures, and the formulation of results as a uniform ideal-typical pattern that precludes recognition of individual differences.
