Examined the effect of written vs videotaped model presentation and the effect of a male vs a female model on beginning counselor trainee's production of counselor tacting response leads (CTRL). 65 beginning master's degree students in counseling were randomly assigned to 1 of 5 treatment conditions--videotaped male model, videotaped female model, written model present, written model not present, and control. Each S's responses to a series of 16 videotaped client vignettes were rated for frequency and quality of CTRLs. As hypothesized, no differences were found between male and female models. Significant differences for the 3 qualitative measures of CTRLs were found for videotaped models over control and for the written models over control. No differences between the videotaped models and written models were obtained. (22 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
