Chapter Summary

The majority of literature on attitudes toward seeking professional psychological help has focused on Western, predominantly U.S. samples, though attitudes toward counseling differ globally. Due to the paucity of literature with a Muslim sample this study assesses the factor structure of the Attitudes Toward Seeking Professional Psychological Help Scale (ATSPPHS) in Egypt, and its relationship to Islamic beliefs and behaviors. The purpose of the study is twofold: to determine the factor structure of the ATSPPHS in an Egyptian sample, a country in which these attitudes have yet to be investigated, and to determine the extent to which both Islamic beliefs and behaviors play a role in attitudes toward seeking professional help. Participants in this study were 420 undergraduate Muslim students currently attending one of eight colleges in Egypt. The results of the study indicate a four factor solution for the ATSPPHS in Egypt.
