Help seeking and its relations to self-stigma, attachment models and gender

Dalak, Hatice
This study examined the relationship between help-seeking behavior and gender, self-stigma of seeking psychological help and internal working models of attachment. Sample was selected among university students and 307 of them responded to the study survey. There were three self-reported measures: Self-Stigma of Seeking Psychological Help Scale, Relationships Questionnaire, and Demographic Form. Logistic regression analysis has been implemented to examine the research question. According to the results, self-stigma level significantly predicted helpseeking behavior. Gender and internal working models did not relate to that behavior.
