Outcomes in Counsellor Education
C. H. PATTERSON
If, as is widely accepted, the therapists'attitudes are the most important ingredient in therapy, can these attitudes be fostered in the education of therapists? Some evidence that this can be done has been presented in a series of publications involving the Counsellor Attitude Scale developed by the author (Nelson-Jones and Patterson, 1967; Patterson, 1967, 1975). It can be questioned, however, whether the results of responses to a questionnaire actually represent attitudes. This paper presents a sampling of the free responses of students following a course emphasizing therapeutic attitudes.
