Tucker, Catherine; Dixon, Andrea; Griddine, Ke'Shana
Professional School Counseling, v14 n2 p135-145 Dec 2010
Mattering to others has been shown to be a key construct of mental health and wellness. Emerging research links interpersonal mattering and school climate. In this study, the authors use transcendental phenomenology to explore how interpersonal mattering impacts the academic achievement of urban African American males who are academically successful in high school. Implications for the integration of this new information in school counseling are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
