Cultural-Milieu Counseling with Asian-American Students at a University Counseling Center.
Onoda, Lawrence
The purpose of this paper is (a) to point out the need for more effective counseling strategies for Asian-Americans and (b) to stimulate thought and discussion regarding alternative methods for counseling Asian-Americans. Since many Asian-Americans have been stereotyped as being "well-adjusted" very little research has been conducted on their psychological needs. Also, little effort has been made to determine whether current counseling strategies are relevant to Asian-Americans. It is the contention of this paper that the traditional models of counseling ignore the cultural background of Asian-Americans. This is the primary reason why Asian-Americans do not utilize counseling services. The Cultural-Milieu counseling approach is a theoretical position that takes into consideration the psychological, sociological, environmental, and cultural factors affecting the counseling process. Finally, the paper discusses the future goals and needs of Asian-Americans in relation to mental health professionals. (Author)
