Self-Concealment and Willingness to Seek Counseling for Psychological, Academic, and Career Issues
Vogel, David L.; Armstrong, Patrick Ian
Journal of Counseling & Development, v88 n4 p387-396 Fall 2010
Cramer's (1999) model of self-concealment and willingness to seek counseling was extended to examine the role of positive and negative social experiences in a sample of 235 college students reporting a psychological, academic, or career issue. Structural equation modeling indicated that self-concealment predicted willingness through the mediators of negative social experiences and psychological distress. Forty-eight percent of the variance in psychological distress and 6% of the variance in willingness were accounted for in the model.
