Atkinson, Donald R.; Wampold, Bruce E.
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v40 n2 p245-48 Apr 1993
Responds to article by Lopez, Lopez, and Fong in which research was reviewed on Mexican Americans' reactions to ethnically similar and dissimilar counselors. Reexamines choice and judgment methodologies, discusses limitations of simple choice methodology, and expresses concern that simple choice methodology in cross-cultural counseling research will provide unrealistic test of preferences for counselors.
