This study, based on grounded theory, explored aspects of diagnostic variance in the clinical decision-making process among 41 counselors and counselor trainees. As such, this article discusses the various forms of diagnostic variance and the cognitive information-processing tools used by practitioners, to highlight an evolving theory of how helping professionals vary in their clinical decision making. Implications for practice, training and future research are provided. (Contains 3 tables and 1 note.)
