The Role of Client Talk in the Counseling Interview.

This reprinted article originally appeared in (Educational & Psychological Measurement, 1948, Vol 8, 635-644). (The following abstract of the original article appeared in record .) The relation between the amount of counselee talk and the effectiveness of counseling was studied by making an analysis of 78 verbatim typescripts of weekly interviews held in connection with a college how-to-study course. Effectiveness of counseling was judged by 3 criteria: growth in counselee insight, working relationship, and client responsibility for the progress of the interview. The highest correlation (.66) was obtained between the talk ratio (amount of client talk to the total amount of talk in the interview) and counselee responsibility for interview progress, correlations with the other 2 indices being only low positive. The relationship between the 2 factors was also affected by such variables as the topic of the counseling unit and counseling techniques. The conclusion of the study is that "it is not possible to use the amount of client talk as a criterion of counseling effectiveness."
