Counseling psychology is committed to helping people meet the challenges and solve the problems they encounter in daily routines and in stressful circumstances. To a great extent, this holds true for other professional psychology specialties (including clinical, educational, and health psychology) as clients usually seek professional assistance in solving the problems they face. Thus, the study of problem-solving abilities-their measurement and correlates-and efcient ways to improve these abilities is of keen interest to clinicians and researchers.
