Abstract : The study investigated the effectiveness of a leaderless encounter group experience on the role anxiety and role competence of graduate students engaged in learning therapy and counseling skills. The experimental subject sample consisted of a near entire population of first year students in the Counseling and Clinical Psychology programs at Texas Tech University during the academic year of 1969-70. These students, enrolled in either the M.A. or Ph.D. programs, were involved in the learning of therapy and counseling skills through actual therapist-client relationships beginning in the first semester of their training.
