Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the moderating effect of maladaptive perfectionism on the relationship between cultural sensitivity and counselors-in-training attitudes toward non-dominant sexual identities. A total of 209 counseling graduate students participated in the study. Results showed that cultural sensitivity predicted attitudes toward individuals who identify with a non-dominant sexual identity after controlling for age. Also, a regression analysis demonstrated that maladaptive perfectionism is a moderator in the relationship between cultural sensitivity and attitudes toward individuals who identify with a non-dominant sexual identity among counselors-in-trainings. Implications in the counseling and education field and suggestions for future research are discussed.
