Johnson, Mark E.; Lashley, Karen H.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v17 n3 p115-22 Jul 1989
Explored effects of Native-American undergraduate students' (N=84) cultural commitment on preference for ethnically similar counselors. Found degree of cultural commitment significantly affected preferences for counselor ethnicity as well as expectations about counseling, in that subjects reporting strong commitments to culture expected more nurturance, facilitative conditions, and counselor expertise than did subjects with weak commitments.
