Civitci, Asim
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v32 n1 p56-65 Mar 2010
In this study, relationships between vocational self-esteem and psychological needs (autonomy, affiliation, achievement, and dominance) in Turkish counseling students were examined. In addition, the moderating effect of gender on the relationships between vocational self-esteem and psychological needs was investigated. The participants consisted of 281 undergraduate counseling students at Pamukkale University, in Denizli, Turkey. Data were gathered by using the Vocational Self-Esteem Scale and the Needs Assessment Questionnaire. Results indicated that vocational self-esteem was positively related to need for affiliation and achievement in Turkish counseling students. Vocational self-esteem was higher in female students compared to male students. There was a stronger relationship between vocational self-esteem and need for achievement in females than males.
