Relationships of White and Black Racial Identity Attitudes and Demographic Similarity to Counselor Preferences.
Helms, Janet E.; Carter, Robert T.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n4 p446-57 Oct 1991
Used assumptions from racial identity and demographic models in two studies to examine white (n=183) and African-American (n=76) college students' strength of preference for counselors' racial and demographic characteristics. Found that whites' racial identity attitudes predicted their social class and white-counselor preferences; African Americans' racial identity attitudes predicted their preference for white male counselors.
