Relationship between Self-Efficacy and Counseling Attitudes among First-Year College Students
Tirpak, David M.; Schlosser, Lewis Z.
Journal of College Counseling, v18 n3 p209-221 Oct 2015
The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between a set of self-efficacy variables and a set of variables assessing attitudes toward counseling. Results revealed a significant relationship between self-efficacy and attitudes toward counseling among a sample of 253 first-year college students. Low perceptions of self-efficacy were associated with a devaluation of career counseling and more negative attitudes toward seeking personal counseling. Implications for these findings are discussed.
