Diagnostic Decision Making: Do Counselors Delay Final Judgments?
Hill, Carrie L.; Ridley, Charles R.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v79 n1 p98-104 Win 2001
Investigates whether counselors delayed their diagnostic decisions in a setting that allowed them the option of doing so. Clinical records from a counselor training center were selected and coded for delayed diagnostic decision making. Results indicate that delayed diagnostic decision making occurred to a greater extent than immediate diagnostic decision making across counselor-client dyads, counselors, and clients.
