International Students in Rehabilitation Counseling Education Programs: Results from a National Survey
Zhu, Yanan; Degeneffe, Charles Edmund
Rehabilitation Research, Policy, and Education, v25 n1-2 p73-86 2011
A national sample of 21 international students in Rehabilitation Counseling Education (RCE) programs was surveyed on their connection to their programs, the stressors they experienced during graduate studies, and their recommendations for RCE programs to better support international students. Participants engaged in limited social activities due to time limitations, cultural and language barriers, and limited social opportunities. Further, participants suggested that RCE programs need to possess awareness and understanding of international student needs and offer assistance with social support, financial resources, career development, language skills, and cultural transitions. Implications and recommendations from the findings are offered. (Contains 2 tables.)
