Abstract

Statement of the Problem. This study was designed and carried out for the purpose of answering the following question: What are the relationships among responses to a value inventory by first, counselees, and second, counselors in two situations; (1) normal self response, and (2) role playing response? Methods and Procedures. The Allport-Vernon-Lindzey Study of Values was employed in carrying out the study. This instrument deals with six values areas; theoretical, economic, aesthetic, social, political, and religious. The instrument was administered to twenty-three students involved in a counseling practicum and twenty-three elementary education students prior to counseling. After the counselors met with the counselees for two interviews, they were instructed to assume the role of the counselee in responding to the instrument. The data were collected and statistical analyses applied. These analyses consisted of ranking the scores for; (1) counselors and counselees, (2) counselors and counselors in a role playing situation, and (3) counselees and counselors in a role playing situation. The differences in rank-order of the scores in these three situations were obtained and a Spearman rank-order coefficient of correlation determined for each individual in various situations. The mean rho was computed to ascertain the relationship between the three sets of scores. Finally, a t test was employed to determine the degree of difference between the mean rho coefficients for the three situations. Conclusions. From the analyses of the data the following conclusions were derived. 1. There was little relationship between the rankorder values of the counselors and counselees. Only two were positively and significantly related. 2. There was little relationship between the values of the counselors and the counselors in a role playing situation. Only one was positively and significantly related. 3. There was not an overall significant relationship between the counselee*s values and those manifested by the counselors in a role playing situation. Only three coefficients were positively and significantly related. 4. There was not a significant difference between the mean rhos of the scores for counselors-counselees as compared to counselor-counselor role playing. 5. There was a significant difference between the mean rho for the scores for counselors-counselees as compared to counselees-counselor role playing. 6. There was a significant difference between the mean rhoa for the scores of the counselor-counselor role playing as compared to counselee-counselor role playing.
