Description

In Working With Asian American Clients, Dr. Jean Lau Chin demonstrates an approach that addresses issues of culture and cultural competence within the therapeutic session, in essence acknowledging the client's culture as a "third person" in the therapy room.

In this session, Dr. Chin works with a 40-year-old woman who immigrated to the United States from Vietnam who is dealing with issues surrounding her family's reactions to her separation from her husband. Dr. Chin works to build rapport and trust with the client by understanding her perspective, allowing her to express her emotions and open up about her life problems.
