Counselor Nonverbal Self-Disclosure and Fear of Intimacy during Employment Counseling: An Aptitude-Treatment Interaction Illustration
Carrein, Cindy; Bernaud, Jean-Luc
Journal of Employment Counseling, v47 n3 p134-144 Sep 2010
This study investigated the effects of nonverbal self-disclosure within the dynamic of aptitude-treatment interaction. Participants (N = 94) watched a video of a career counseling session aimed at helping the jobseeker to find employment. The video was then edited to display 3 varying degrees of nonverbal self-disclosure. In conjunction with the measure of counselor assessment, the authors measured the fear-of-intimacy level by using the Doi and Thelen (1993) model. Results showed that when self-disclosure does not have an effect on counselor assessment, a moderator effect due to the fear of intimacy becomes evident. Implications for research and practice are presented. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
