Abstract:This researcher studied the differences of locus of control orientation among Caucasian Americans, Asian Americans, and Asian International students. The interaction effect of locus of control orientation and counseling approach, and the effect of racial similarity on perceived counselor characteristics and preferences of counseling approaches among these three groups were also investigated. A total of 159 university students (76 Caucasian Americans, 37 Asian Americans, and 46 Asian Internationals) participated in the study. Four videotapes with different combinations of counseling approach and racial similarity were made for presentation to the subjects. The results indicated that no differences of locus of control orientation were found among the three groups. The results also did not support the hypothesis of interaction effect of locus of control orientation and counseling approach. A significant interaction effect of a subject's racial/cultural background and racial similarity on perceived counselor characteristics was found. The study was of value in that it enhanced the awareness of counselors who worked with Asian Americans and International students.
