Satisfaction with Counseling (SWC) is a one-item measure used in a study of Christian counseling (Sutton et al., 2018).
Participants were asked: “Overall, how satisfied were you with the counseling experience?”
They rated the item on a 5-point scale of satisfaction (Highly satisfied, Somewhat satisfied, Neutral, Somewhat dissatisfied, Very dissatisfied).
In study 2, the SWC was significantly positively correlated with two outcome measures
Schwartz Outcome Scale (SOS) .63
Theistic Outcome Scale (TSOS) .65
Adult Hope Scale .61
Avoidant subscale of the Attachment to GodInventory -.40
