Lee, Sun Hae; Choi, Jung Ah; Park, Ji Hye
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v43 n2 p122-136 Apr 2015
This study examined the applicability of the theory of planned behavior to understand factors that influence whether young South Koreans help peers with depression to seek professional counseling services. The structural equation modeling on the survey data collected from 191 South Korean students suggests that subjective norms and behavioral control could be salient factors for young South Koreans to take initiative and assist their peers in need of counseling services.
