Abstract:

This study investigated the relationship of personality, gender role conflict, and self-stigma on the attitudes of college students toward internet counseling and their intentions to use such services. Previous literature has shown that online therapy can be ethically provided and has effective outcomes. Theorists have wondered if online counseling would minimize the negative impact of masculine gender roles and self-stigma of receiving counseling services; neither of which has been empirically tested. Data were analyzed from 494 college students. Results indicated that self-stigma is more positively related to attitudes and intentions to seek help for online counseling than it is for face-to-face counseling. The gender role conflict aspect of Restrictive Emotionality was positively associated with attitudes toward online counseling. No aspects of gender role conflict were related to intentions to seek online help for interpersonal or academic concerns while Conflicts Between Work and Family Life was positively related to intentions to seek help for drug concerns. The Five Factor Model aspect of Openness was found to be significantly related to attitudes toward online counseling and intentions to seek online counseling, whereas Extraversion was not. Post-hoc analyses explored gender differences in these relationships. Results indicated that online counseling may be a favorable option for people experiencing high levels of self-stigma toward mental health services, men with certain aspects of gender role conflict, and people who are high in the personality aspect of Openness. Future directions for research and implications for practice are discussed.
