Gloria, Alberta M.; Castellanos, Jeanett; Park, Yong Sue; Kim, Daniel
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n4 p419-428 Fall 2008
Differences in and relationships of Asian cultural values, cultural congruity, perception of the university environment, and help-seeking attitudes for 1st- and 2nd-generation Korean American undergraduates (N = 228) were examined. Women reported significantly higher cultural congruity and more positive help-seeking attitudes than did men. Asian values adherence negatively predicted help-seeking attitudes for women and 2nd-generation students only. Implications for Korean American undergraduate support services are discussed, and suggestions are presented for future research.
