School Counselors' Self-Perceived Asian American Counseling Competence
Shen, Yih-Jiun; Lowinger, Robert Jay
Professional School Counseling, v11 n1 p69-71 Oct 2007
Two hundred and three school counselors were surveyed online concerning their perceived competence when counseling Asian American students. Although the counselors had limited interactions with the population, they reported a self-assured overall competency. Specifically, they felt competent about the awareness domain, somewhat competent about the skills domain, yet unsure about the knowledge domain. Recruiting counselors with Asian backgrounds and continuously providing preservice training and professional development concerning Asian American counseling are recommended.
