Park-Saltzman, Jeeseon; Wada, Kaori; Mogami, Tamiko
Counseling Psychologist, v40 n6 p895-915 Aug 2012
With growing attention to the internationalization of counseling psychology in the past decade, discussion on effective training of international students is much-needed. In order to provide effective mentorship to international students, the mentor needs to be aware of specific challenges faced by international students and cultural differences that may affect their mentoring relationship. With this in mind, this article discusses ways to provide culturally sensitive mentoring particularly to Asian international students in counseling psychology programs. A brief overview of Asian values is provided as a contextual backdrop to the article, followed by a discussion of culturally sensitive mentoring to Asian international mentees. In particular, the article addresses the mentor's awareness and knowledge of unique issues faced by Asian international students, the structure and format of mentoring, communication between the mentor and the mentee, and professional development and career-related issues.
