Does Language Matter? Veterans’ Attitudes Toward Seeking Professional Help

Mar 30, 2019 10:30am ‐ Mar 30, 2019 11:00am


Description

Language can shape perception and influence cognitive processes. Seeking professional psychological help has been stigmatized in military culture, and veterans often do not seek treatment for mental health concerns. Language used to describe mental health professionals (e.g., counselor, psychologist) may contribute to attitudes toward seeking professional psychological help. The researchers identified differences in attitudes depending on the terminology describing the mental health professional.
