Results of a study involving 128 African American college-age males support a model indicating that racial identity development statuses of conformity, dissonance, and immersion/emersion, along with counselor race, were significantly related to participants' perceptions of their counselors. These findings support the thesis that black males have a culturally based perceptual view of themselves and others. (SLD)
