A Rating System for Studying Nondirective Client-Centered Interviews—Revised


Wilczynski, Jerome, Brodley, Barbara T., and Brody, Anne


This rating system for studying nondirective client-centered interviews modifies and updates preceding unpublished versions (Brodley & Brody, 1990, 1991, 1993; Brody, 1991). It is uniquely distinguished from other client-centered rating scales (e.g., Truax & Carkhuff, 1967; Carkhuff, 1969; Lietaer, 1995; Gundrum, Lietaer & Van Hees-Matthijssen, 1999) because it is the only client-centered rating system that takes into account the therapist’s nondirective intention or attitude when making category or rating distinctions.
