Cognitive Complexity among Practicing Counselors: How Thinking Changes with Experience
Granello, Darcy Haag
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n1 p92-100 Win 2010
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether years of experience in the counseling profession can help predict levels of cognitive complexity among practicing counselors. Results of a regression equation found that counselors with more years in the counseling profession had higher levels of cognitive complexity, with highest degree obtained in the counseling profession also contributing to the prediction equation. Years as a practicing counselor, age, gender, and race did not contribute significantly to the equation.
