Attitudes toward Seeking Professional Psychological Help: A Shortened Form and Considerations for Research.
Fischer, Edward H.; Farina, Amerigo
Journal of College Student Development, v36 n4 p368-73 Jul-Aug 1995
Tested a new, shortened scale for measuring willingness to seek help from mental health professionals. Scores correlated with the 29-item scale developed by Fischer and Turner (1970); the new scale's brevity (10 items) should make it easier and less obtrusive for use in research. Discusses the need for further studies on attitudes toward help-seeking. (RJM)
