Trainees versus Staff: Exploring Counseling Outcomes in a College Counseling Center
Ilagan, Guy; Vinson, Mike; Sharp, Julia L.; Havice, Pamela; Ilagan, Jill
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v28 n3 p229-240 2014
Investigators compared counseling outcomes among nonpaid graduate-level trainees and professional staff at a college counseling center. Counseling outcomes for 331 college student participants were measured using the Outcome Questionnaire 45.2 (OQ45.2), employing a pretest--posttest design. The two groups of service providers did not differ significantly (p = .179; a > .05). A unique aspect of this study was the statistical control for the clients' readiness to change. The implications for practice in college counseling centers suggest the use of graduate-level trainees as effective counseling providers and a method to cope with high demand for services.
