College Student-Athletes' Attitudes Toward Help-Seeking Behavior and Expectations of Counseling Services

This study compared the attitudes toward help-seeking behavior and expectations about counseling of 135 college student-athletes and 132 nonathletes in an attempt to identify significant differences that might warrant the need for specific approaches with each population. Significant differences were found between student-athletes and nonathletes on both variables. Implications for college counselors and student affairs professionals are presented to address the growing concern that college student-athletes are increasingly underutilizing counseling and support services.
