This analogue study examined the characteristics of dogmatism and spiritual well-being in master's level counselors-in-training at the practicum and/or internship phase of their program. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of these constructs with one's perception of spirituality as a relevant presenting issue. One hundred participants participated in this study by reviewing contrived intake materials and a sample transcript. Following this review, participants were asked their perception of relevance for six presenting issues and then completed two paper-and-pencil self-report instruments: the DOG Scale and Spiritual Well-Being Scale. Data suggests no significant or reportable relationships exist between dogmatism and spiritual well-being and one's perception of spiritual relevance during intake. Additional results are supplied as well as implications of this study for counselor education.
