Summary or Abstract : The present study examined the relationships between attitudes towards psychotherapy, level of acculturation, and depressive symptoms. An ethnically diverse sample of college students (N=152) was surveyed to assess their attitudes towards psychotherapy and symptoms of depression. Students were divided into low and high scoring depressive symptom groups and low and high acculturation groups. It was predicted that less depressed participants would endorse generally positive attitudes towards seeking professional psychological assistance as compared to their more depressed peers. The second prediction was that participants who were more acculturated to the Western American culture would generally endorse positive attitudes towards seeking professional psychological help compared to their less acculturated counterparts. It was also predicted that females would report greater openness to and confidence in psychotherapy than their male counterparts. Results indicated mixed support for Hypothesis (1) Participants in the Low Depressive symptom group showed more insight to their problems yet they were also less likely to be open to seeking out help outside of their family. Hypothesis two was not supported; acculturation was not found to have a significant influence on views of psychotherapy. Female participants endorsed less positive attitudes towards psychotherapy than male participants. Results were discussed within the context of clarifying possible factors that might preclude depressed individuals from seeking psychology assistance and to understand the attitudinal differences across gender..
