Abstract

The purpose of this research was to investigate whether or not ones culture has an impact on perception and receptivity on psychotherapy. Culture can be divided up into two large subsets, individualist and collectivist. Individualist cultures tend to lean toward valuing independency and collectivist cultures tend to lean toward effects of ones actions on the family as well as society. Participants were presented with a survey which using three scales would determine which subsets of culture they shared values with as well as their perceptions on receiving psychotherapy and stigmas associated.
