Abstract (Summary)

A recent article, “Rethinking Individualism and Collectivism: Evaluation of Theoretical Assumptions and Meta-Analyses” (D. Oyserman, H. M. Coon, & M. Kemmelmeier, 2002), revealed that 170 studies have been conducted on the worldview dimensions of individualism and collectivism.

This article reviews the results of the authors’ analyses and discusses the implications for counseling
