Abstract

In an attempt to replicate previous findings, this study compared the change processes that psychologists report using when treating clients (n=132) and when treating themselves (n=140) for alcohol abuse. The results essentially replicated earlier research in that employment of particular change processes varied as a function of theoretical orientation for psychologists' client change but not for psychologists' self-change. Several processes, such as stimulus control and self-liberation, were employed more often with self-change, but medication more often with clients. Five possible explanations for this pattern and a general "facilitation effect" are discussed. © 1991 Ablex Publishing Corporation.
