Coping attitudes, sources, and practices were assessed within and across a sample of Asian American college and graduate students from four ethnic groups: Chinese, Korean, Filipino, and Indian (N = 470). We found that Asian Americans tended to endorse coping sources and practices that emphasized talking with familial and social relations rather than professionals such as counselors and doctors. Korean Americans were significantly more likely to cope with problems by engaging in religious activities. Counseling implications are discussed.
