Summary

This study examines the efficacy of specially devised information in altering students' perceptions of the appropriateness of personal problems for counseling and their willingness to seek counseling for such problems. Women at a large Eastern university provided the sample for this study; one group received oral-written information, another group received written information only, and a third control group received neither oral nor written information. The results indicate that students who received both written and orally-presented information showed an increase on these dependent variables, while students receiving only written information did not. Consequently, the conclusion was drawn that written information may inform students of the availability of counseling, but it does not alter their impression of kinds of problems appropriate for counseling sessions.
