Fall, Kevin A.; Levitov, Justin E.; Jennings, Maureen; Eberts, Stephanie
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v22 n2 p122-34 Apr 2000
Study examines the public's confidence in clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, master's and doctoral-level counselors, and social workers by ranking confidence levels across five case vignettes of varying severity. Results indicate that the doctoral-level counselors were perceived similarly to clinical psychologists across all cases and were preferred in every case over master's-level counselors.
