6 Scopus citations


Investigated the relation between preferences and expectations about counselors in a university student counseling service in a population of 100 student clients before their initial intake session. Compared with results from an earlier study on nonclients, preferences and expectations were more congruent in clients. Both clients and nonclients, however, preferred a more active counselor who promotes cognitive and behavioral change and expels symptoms.
