Abstract:
The present study investigated counseling expectations of Mexican American clients in relation to acculturation by conducting personal interviews with a convenient sample of ten Mexican American clients. Utilizing a qualitative approach, the information gathered through personal interviews was consolidated as well as presented verbatim-style, and to some extent, it was interpreted as deemed appropriate. The results of the data revealed that there were no great contrasts of expectations across the acculturation levels for this set of participants. There were indications that what was generally stated for one particular acculturation level also applied to other levels as well. An implication of this study was that knowledge of counseling expectations as well as how they affect the counseling process and whether these expectations are being met will provide the mental health community with necessary and useful information to enhance the continued development of effective interventions for the Mexican American client.
