Self-Management during Counseling Sessions:The Behavioral Assessment of Processes
AbstractThe social learning model of behavioral self-management provides a promising base for the assessment of intra-and interindividual differences in self-control. Assessments of the anticriminal efforts of probationers were made from audiotapes of counseling sessions. The assessments proved to be reliable, to correlate with several relevant attitude and personality measures and were predictive of postprogram recidivism. The application of specific self-regulation skills were more predictive than were general plans or expressions of values supportive of self-management.
