The purpose of this study was to examine how cultural practices, cultural values, cultural identification, and acculturative stress related to counselor self-efficacy among foreign-born counseling students. A total of 93 foreign-born students currently enrolled in graduate counseling programs in the United States were included in this survey research study. Participants completed an on-line survey, which included the Counselor Self-Estimate Inventory, the Vancouver Index of Acculturation, the Horizontal and Vertical Individualism and Collectivism 16-item revised scale, the Multi-Group Ethnic Identity Measure-Revised, the Riverside Acculturative Stress Inventory, and a demographic questionnaire. A 2-step hierarchical multiple regression was conducted to analyze the data. The results indicated that acculturative stress accounted for 3% of the variance in counselor self-efficacy and was not statistically significant. However, after adding the remaining predictor variables to the equation, all the other predictive variables accounted for an additional 15% of the counseling self-efficacy among foreign-born counseling students. The findings suggest that: 1) ethnic identity and individualistic values positively influence counselor self-efficacy, 2) acculturative stress negatively influences counselor self-efficacy, and 3) continued research should continue to explore a multi-dimensional model of acculturation when examining foreign-born students’ training in counseling.
