According to ACA (2014) indicated that when counselors spend more time with client it will pave the way in building trust and therapeutic relationship. Also, when a counselor is not grounded well with diverse multi-cultural and religious system the counselor should consult more qualified and experienced counselor for advice. Mary Ann needed the counselor to resolve her feelings of depression and motivate her in order to do better in school and to get involved in any way with her religious faith. It is essential to understand the religious and cultural background of the client and the family in order to initiate appropriate intervention.
There is no doubt that the counsellor needs to be aware of the complexity of culture (Pedersen & Ivey, 1993). Culture results from the interaction of a number of variables including ethnographic, demographic, socio-economic, and relational factors. Within a culture, people develop patterns of behaviours based on a number of assumptions they have learned either directly, observationally or vicariously (Mitchell & Krumboltz, 1996). People also develop a cultural identity by
The United States wanted to be able to trade with Japan. Japan is on the trade route to china so the americans wanted to set up a coal station in Japan, so they could get fuel for their steamships. The U.S sent a representative to try and discuss about getting a coal station, but he was told to leave. Next commodore Perry entered edo with four huge war ships and several objectives; to get supplies and coal from Japan, to protect sailors and american ships that might need help, and to have an official trade agreement with Japan. After the third time the United states came into japan asking for a coal station the bakufu decided to sign the treaty in 1854. At the time japan felt that this agreement was a huge accomplishment because, it allowed them to still be independent and control over their country, although no trade agreement was actually made, but Perry’s other two objectives were met; two ports were opened to the U.S ships, and shipwrecked sailors were to
The origins of clinical mental health counseling are best explained through an understanding of the counseling profession as a whole. From its start, counseling was interdisciplinary, evolving from such disciplines “including but not limited to anthropology, education, ethics, history, law, medical sciences, philosophy, psychology, and sociology” (Gladding, 2013, p. 3) . As people began to experience adverse effects to their lives due to the circumstances of the Industrial Revolution, it was apparent that help was needed, sparking humanitarian work and the beginnings of counseling. By the early 1900s people began to take notice of the counseling profession in the form of the progressive guidance

As a counseling student, it is very important to formulate a counseling theory tailored to ones’ own personality and beliefs. A counselor may choose a single theory to model when practicing therapy or pick and choose components and techniques from various theories, otherwise known as eclecticism. No theory is considered right or wrong. Understanding the different therapeutic approaches are important to effective counseling, however, counselors must also understand their own personal value, view of human nature, human behavior, counseling techniques and the purpose and goals of counseling. Understanding these components along with the different theoretical approaches will provide the counselor with a 9 knowledge of their own counseling, orientation and is essential to not only the productivity of counseling but the growth of the counselor as well.
“They would not be able to help me and I do not need their help anyway” is a common answer given by Korean-Americans when asked why they do not utilize mental health services, such as psychotherapy. This response broadly reflects two of the predominant reasons why Korean-Americans largely oppose the notion of Western psychotherapy. For one, there is the widespread opinion among the Korean-American population that the psychotherapist or mental health specialist conceives of the problems and solutions using a framework that differs from the cultural beliefs held by Korean-Americans (Kim & Ryu, 2005). Korean-Americans are inclined to believe that Western psychotherapy cannot be helpful in resolving their issues because the therapist will

The Japanese culture has allowed for very little diversity. This started very early in their history. The social controls used to eliminate diversity are the family, the power of gender, the poor treatment of minority groups, the corporate Japanese mentality, and the respect required by people in authority.
