Abstract: The purpose of this analogue study was to investigate the effects of therapists' level of functioning as determined by the core facilitative conditions—empathy, respect, genuineness, and concreteness—on their co-therapists' level of functioning and level of activity within multiple therapy. While numerous studies have investigated the importance of facilitative conditions in individual and group therapy, no studies have been reported considering these dimensions within a multiple therapy situation. Seventy-six undergraduate students were given the Counselor Simulation Inventory and their responses v/ere rated by three judges on the Carkhuff scales for empathy, respect, genuineness, and concreteness. Twenty students rated highest and 20 students rated lowest were selected to participate in the study. These 40 therapists were paired ii-U, H-L, and L-L.

While numerous studies have investigated the importance of facilitative conditions in individual and group therapy, no studies have been reported considering these dimensions within a multiple therapy situation. Seventy-six undergraduate students were given the Counselor Simulation Inventory and their responses v/ere rated by three judges on the Carkhuff scales for empathy, respect, genuineness, and concreteness. Twenty students rated highest and 20 students rated lowest were selected to participate in the study. These 40 therapists were paired ii-U, H-L, and L-L. 3. When a high-functioning non-facilitative therapist and a low- functioning non-facilitative therapist were placed together, their functioning levels decreased significantly (p<.05), the H therapist decreased significantly (p<'.05) in his activity level while the L therapist's activity level remained unchanged, and their client's level of self-exploration decreased. 4. When two low-functioning non-facilitative therapists worked together, their functioning leve.s decreased significantly (p<',05), their activity levels remained unchanged, and their client's level of self-exploration decreased. 5. Client self-exploration in the multiple session of the L-L condition was significantly lower than in the II-H condition (p < .01) . Conclusions and implications from these findings were discussed and suggestions for further research were given.
