Ethnocultural Person-Environment Fit and College Adjustment: Some Implications for College Counselors
Hutz, Aida; Martin, William E., Jr.; Beitel, Mark
Journal of College Counseling, v10 n2 p130 Fall 2007
The authors investigated the relationship between students' ethnocultural person-environment (P-E) fit and college adjustment. They hypothesized differences between P-E fit of ethnocultural minority versus majority students at a predominantly White university but did not expect differences in adjustment. Furthermore, they explored the effects of ethnicity and sex on P-E fit and adjustment. Findings generally supported the hypotheses. The authors provide recommendations to increase college counselors' effectiveness in working with diverse clients. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
