This exploratory study is designed to investigate the role of pre-counseling client expectancy as it affects the outcome of initial-interview counseling. To facilitate investigation into this area it was necessary to develop a measuring instrument whereby an individual's expectation of the success of counseling could be assessed. This instrument was then administered to beginning clients at two counseling facilities.
