dc.description.abstract This thesis has explored the relationship between a personality variable, A-B status of the therapist, and his perceived success with various clinical populations. The subjects were 89 Ph.D. psychologists in Indiana who responded to a written questionaire. The therapist's A-B status was determined by the Whitehorn-Betz 10-item A-B scale. The relationship between psychologists' A-B ratings and their perceived success with various nosological groups was studied.The results did not support past A-B research. The correlations between the A-B variable and the therapists' ratings of perceived success with schizophrenic and neurotic patients were not significant. Similarly, correlations between the A-B status of the therapist and his perceived success with alcoholic and drug dependent patients were not statistically significant.
