Dr. Jane Myers Receives National Counseling Research Award

GREENSBORO – Dr. Jane Myers of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and her research partner have received the American Counseling Association’s 2004 Research Award.

Myers and Dr. Catherine Chang of Georgia State University received the award for “Cultural Adaptation of the Wellness Evaluation of Lifestyle: An Assessment Challenge,” an article published in the January 2003 issue of Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development.

They translated the Wellness Evaluation of Lifestyle from English into Korean and administered the evaluation to Korean American adolescents. The results of the research underscore the need for adaptation of personality measures across cultures and for further study of the challenges of cross-cultural test adaptations.

 With headquarters in Alexandria, Va., the American Counseling Association has more than 50,000 members.
