Undergraduate and Graduate Students' Attitudes toward Addiction Treatment Manuals

Journal of Teaching in the Addictions, v4 n2 p23-43 2005
A pilot survey of 36 undergraduate (n = 10) and graduate (n = 26) students employed as counselors was used to explore students' attitudes toward empirically supported treatment (EST) manuals for chemical abuse and dependence. There were no significant differences in attitudes toward ESTs between undergraduates and graduates; however, undergraduates reported that the type of manual, supervision and client characteristics influence their views of ESTs' usefulness. In addition, non-recovering students reported that supervision, training, financial incentives and organization influence their views of ESTs' usefulness. Supervision was related to students' acceptance of ESTs, but research expectations and skills were linked to their comprehension of manual usefulness. Implications for undergraduate psychology and graduate counseling programs are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
