Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

PRIOR RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT THERAPISTS CLASSIFIED AS "A'S" ON THE WHITEHORN-BETZ A-B SCALE ACHIEVE BETTER OUTCOMES IN PSYCHOTHERAPY WITH SCHIZOPHRENIC PATIENTS, WHILE B'S PERFORM BETTER WITH NEUROTIC PATIENTS. THE PRESENT EXPERIMENT, A PSYCHOTHERAPY ANALOGUE USING 72 UNTRAINED SS AS QUASI-THERAPISTS, FOUND THAT A'S, WHEN PAIRED WITH A SCHIZOID PATIENT, AND B'S, WHEN PAIRED WITH A NEUROTIC PATIENT FOUND IT EASIER TO SELECT SELF-CHOSEN HELPFUL RESPONSES AND WERE MORE SATISFIED WITH THEIR PERFORMANCE THAN UNDER THE OPPOSITE THERAPIST-BY-PATIENT CONDITIONS OF PAIRING. THESE RESULTS ARE CONSISTENT WITH DATA ON ACTUAL THERAPIST. METHODOLOGICAL IMPLICATIONS FOR PSYCHOTHERAPY AND ANALOGUE RESEARCH ARE ADDUCED.
