Telecounseling for the linguistically isolated: a pilot study with older Korean immigrants.
This study explored the feasibility and preliminary efficacy of a telecounseling program in the client’s native language. Participants who were native Korean language speakers living in Florida showed generally high levels of acceptance and adherence to the telecounseling program. The high retention of the participants may be due to multiple factors including brevity of the program and convenience of the location.

Using a data mining approach to discover behavior correlates of chronic disease: a case study of depression.
The purposes of this methodological paper are: 1) to describe data mining methods for building a classification model for a chronic disease using a U.S. behavior risk factor data set, and 2) to illustrate application of the methods using a case study of depressive disorder. Its application of data mining strategies identified childhood experience living with mentally ill and sexual abuse, and limited usual activity as the strongest correlates of depression among hundreds of variables.
