Abstract

Residential adult drug and alcohol treatment centers have yet to investigate the relationship between counselors' emotional intelligence and client success. The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between the emotional intelligence as well as the personal and professional characteristics of counselors working in residential drug and alcohol treatment centers and client success in treatment. Suggestions for future research include clarifying the relevance of emotional intelligence for a larger sample size, and developing a greater knowledge of risk factors that can contribute towards unsuccessful client treatment stays.
