≪Organizer Abstract≫
With globalization, it is particularly important for college counselors to increase awareness on international perspectives. For example, it has been repeatedly reported that international students underutilize counseling and mental health services. Also, there is a movement on realizing the importance of indigenous models of counseling around the world. The aim of the symposium is to present the international perspectives on college counseling to meet the needs of globalizing societies. In the presentations, trends and issues around counseling international students as well as examples of international collaborations enhancing the quality of counseling services will be introduced. Although college counseling traditionally has focused on mental health issues, it is critical to include career components as globalizing world of work affects college students. Thus, discussant will add career and work perspectives in order to facilitate a comprehensive understanding of international issues in college counseling.
