Understanding and Counseling Asian American Students.
Chandras, Kananur V.
Asian American students who encounter personal problems may hesitate to utilize counseling and mental health facilities on campuses, being fearful that family, friends and/or relatives may consider them emotionally unstable. Counselors and mental health workers may lack understanding of language and cultural background of Asian-American students, resulting in frustrations and misunderstandings for both parties involved. Counselors, teachers, administrators, and non-Asian-American students would benefit from more information on diverse cultural backgrounds, acculturation and assimilation problems, counseling implications, and mental disorders involving identity problems for Asian-American students.
