Comparing the Effectiveness of Two Directive Styles in the Academic Counseling of Foreign Students.
Merta, Rod J.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v39 n2 p214-18 Apr 1992
Examined effectiveness of two directive academic counseling styles (authoritative versus collaborative) on Asian foreign students' (n=50) ratings of peer counselor effectiveness. High-acculturated students rated authoritative peer counselors higher in overall effectiveness, whereas low-acculturated students rated collaborative peer counselors higher. Findings highlight importance of taking into account within-group differences among culturally diverse clients when conducting research. (Author/NB)
