    • Abstract:
      This paper discusses a study that attempted to better understand the tendency to stigmatize help-seeking among Koreans. Specific research questions investigated were: Is there a relationship between individualism-collectivism and tolerance of stigma associated with help-seeking among Koreans? Is there a difference in tolerance of stigma associated with help-seeking after a counseling experience? and Is there a difference in tolerance of stigma associated with help-seeking between a community sample (n=192) and a college student sample (n=151) in Korea? Results suggest that the higher the level of vertical individualism people exhibit, the less tolerant they are of the stigma associated with seeking psychological help. Also results show a significant inverse relationship between vertical-individualism and tolerance of stigma associated with help-seeking in the college student sample, but no significant relationship between individualism-collectivism and tolerance of stigma associated with help-seeking in the community sample. There were no significant differences in the degree of tolerance of stigma associated with psychological help in the two samples. Implications of these findings for counseling are discussed.
