Toward a Clinically Relevant Model of Counseling Research: Comment on Patton, Kivlighan, and Multon (1997) and Gelso, Kivlighan, Wine, Jones, and Friedman (1997)

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


This response to the articles by M. J. Patton, D. M. Kivlighan, and K. D. Multon (1997) and C. J. Gelso, D. M. Kivlighan, B. Wine, A. Jones, and S. C. Friedman (1997) focuses on the significance and timeliness of these studies, elements of an emerging model for counseling research, the current context of psychoanalytic theory relevant to the counseling and research models of these studies, and measurement of clinical constructs. A broader, though not exhaustive, set of constructs useful for research and practice in psychoanalytic counseling is suggested.
