The conditions that facilitate or hinder adjustment for graduate students in counselling psychology Mah, Deveda Lynn


Flanagan's (1954) critical incident technique was utilized to explore what facilitates or hinders adjustment to graduate school. Twenty-two graduate students from the Department of Counselling Psychology at the University of British Columbia were recruited for this study. In interviews that were audio-taped, each individual reported events that either facilitated or hindered their adjustment to graduate school. Of 227 incidents reported from participants, nine categories were formed. Using percentage of agreement between judges in placing incidents into categories, reliability of the categories was at 94.4%.
