Zhang, Naijian; McCoy, Vickie Ann
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v23 n1 p3-15 2009
Fifty-three counselors at a university counseling center and a university practicum clinic were surveyed using the Working Alliance Inventory-Short Form to examine the effect of acknowledging and discussing racial differences between counselor and client on the working alliance formed during the counseling sessions. Based on the counselor's perspective, a significant relationship between counselor-client discussion of racial difference and the working alliance was found. (Contains 3 tables.)
