Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn culturally sensitive consultation training and practices.
  2. learn a new questionnaire with 10 consultation scenarios that can better fit cross-cultural training needs in Taiwan.
  3. learn how to evaluate the development of consultation self-efficacy (CSE) in consultant training.


It is critical to consider cultural differences in school-based consultation training and service provision. This study developed a new questionnaire with 10 culturally sensitive scenarios to assess the development of consultation self-efficacy in Taiwan. The results based on 428 Taiwanese school counselor trainees showed high internal consistency (α = .89). The questionnaire was also significantly correlated with the Consultation Self-Efficacy Scale (r = .68, p < .01), showing adequate concurrent validity. Practical implications were discussed.
