This 40-item self-report survey was developed as part of a NIDA National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network protocol to obtain information on: demographics; levels of experience, education, and credentials; personal recovery; counseling orientation; previous MET/MI training; and beliefs about treatment, clients, and the recovery process. For counseling orientation, clinicians are asked to rate on a 5-point Likert scale the extent to which each of seven common addiction counseling approaches describes their typical approach. The approaches listed include: 12-step/disease concept, relapse prevention/cognitive-behavioral therapy, reality therapy, motivational interviewing, Rogerian/client centered, Gestalt/experiential, and psychodynamic/interpersonal therapy. For treatment beliefs, clinicians were asked to either rate on a 5-point Likert scale their agreement with several treatment-related beliefs. The statements include the following: resistant clients are very difficult; abstinence is a necessary goal; effective counseling involves struggle; clients need to accept powerlessness; treatment involves advice/suggestions; need to get through to unmotivated clients.
