Abstract:

During recent decades, the number of Asian international students on American campuses has been on the rise. Coming to the U.S, Asian international students face many new transition demands as they adjust to living and learning in very different environment than that in their home countries, which frequently generate emotional stress for them. Campus supports including professional counseling services have been trying their best to be responsive to the needs of these students. Thus, this is important to understand how they perceive and how they utilize these counseling services.
This qualitative study investigates the Asian international students’ perceptions of professional counseling on campus. In this study, the understanding of international students’ needs and development is guided by Transition Theory (Scholossberg, 1981 & 1984; Sargent & Scholossberg, 1988), which helps examine significant changes in their life that result in changed relationships, routines, assumptions, and roles. A phenomenological case study approach with in-depth interview, observation and document analysis, was employed to complete this study. Four major themes emerged: psychological issues, academic and socio-cultural issues and needs, factors influencing their attitudes toward counseling services, and their coping strategies. Counseling, as they perceive, is only for people with mental health issues and in their home countries, universities do not provide counseling services to students. Many of the students learn about these services through their involvement in on-campus activities. The results of this study can be a source for the university to reframe, improve and disseminate its services to Asian international students on campus.
