During the advent of base expectancy scales as a classification device, the Fed. courts in many districts were requiring offenders under probation supervision to submit to mandatory treatment. One of the most prevalent forms of treatment was group counseling modeled on Maxie Maultsby’s (1972)  theory of rational behavior training. This study was an effort to evaluate this counseling model by studying the client’s level of participaiton & its effect on the recidivism prediction of base expectancy scales. This method provided for client grouping based upon common traits, predicted outcome, & counseling attendance. This study concludes that grouping by a statistical criminal behavior prediction device proved to be a helpful research tool which reduced to mathematical specificity many of the generalizations often found in criminal justice research. Continued use of these predictors could have interesting potential in determining which, if any, of the current fads proposed to reduce offender risk actually do alter the way criminals are predicted to behave.
