Dual Relationship Activities: Principal Component Analysis of Counselors' Attitudes
Ethics and Behavior 2003; 13(2): 191-201
The British Columbian Members of the Canadian Guidance and Counselling Association were surveyed to explore their attitudes regarding dual relationships. Of 529 deliverable surveys, 206 usable returns yielded a response rate of 39%. The survey instrument collected data regarding respondents' characteristics and ethicality ratings of 39 dual relationship activity items. An exploratory principal components analysis was performed on responses, resulting in a 4-factor equation, which accounted for 44% of the total variance. The results suggest that, although conceptual considerations of dual relationship typology do underlay the resultant factors, the relative ethicality of each item is also influential.
