Attitudes and expectations of counselling : a cross-cultural perspective Madikiza, Dorcas Bongiwe


The primary purpose of this study was to explore and compare the attitudes and expectations of counselling of two culturally dissimilar groups; the East Indian Canadians and the Anglo European Canadians. Using Structured Interview Questionnaires the study was concerned with six general questions determining similarities and differences in counselling expectancies between the two groups. It was hypothesized that there would be significant differences between the two groups. Analysis of data was accomplished by using frequency distribution and chi square analysis. Statistically significant differences were found between adults and adolescents within each cultural group. Differences were also found when cross-cultural comparisons were made between adults and adolescents of both groups. Discussion of the implications of this study are also presented.
