Examining the Internationalization of Counseling Psychology Scholarship: A Content Analysis of Two US Journals
Pieterse, Alex; Fang, Ke; Evans, Sarah
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v33 n4 p280-292 Dec 2011
This content analysis examined internationally focused scholarship published from 1997 to 2009 in two counseling journals published in the United States (US), namely "The Counseling Psychologist" ("TCP") and the "Journal of Counseling Psychology" ("JCP"). Both demographic and content criteria, including author affiliation, participant location, topic area, cultural relevancy of construct examined, method of collaboration and research design, were examined. A positive trend for the publication of non-US-based scholarship was observed; however, a 10% representation of internationally-oriented scholarship in the past 13-years suggests the potential for further international initiatives and integration in the field. Questions and implications for future development of internationalization within US-based counseling psychology are discussed.
