Understanding At-Risk Korean American Youth.
The variables that contribute to being at risk for school dropout among Korean American adolescents were investigated and possible intervention strategies were explored through qualitative interviews with 10 Korean American adolescents. Three major themes contributing to the students being at risk emerged: (a) a sense of alienation, (b) feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, and (c) searching for support. Intervention strategies for school counselors were generated with respect to their roles and functions defined by the ASCA National Model[R]. **********
