Proxemic behavior: Counselor, administrator, and client preference for seating arrangement in dyadic interaction

Abstract

Employed a 3 * 4 factorial analysis of variance with repeated measures on 1 factor. 10 counselors, 10 administrators, and 10 clients used a semantic differential to respond to photographs depicting 4 proxemic seating arrangements common to counseling. Results show significant differences in preference for certain arrangements and a significant interaction between group membership and preference for a particular arrangement. Implications of these results with respect to role definition, nonverbal communication by the use of spatial arrangements, and potential usefulness to counseling students are discussed. (38 ref.)
