Cultural Adaptation for Therapy with American Indians and Alaska Natives
Gray, Jacqueline S.; Rose, WanmdiWi J.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v40 n2 p82-92 Apr 2012
Most indigenous approaches for any interpersonal interaction begin with the relationship, knowing a person, developing trust, and respect for the individual that fits well with Western interpersonal approaches. Unfortunately, there exists no Western research to determine the efficacy of this method with indigenous populations. Because of the paucity of research on evidence-based treatments with American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) clients, this article addresses barriers to that research and how to adapt treatment to make it more culturally appropriate and acceptable to AI/AN clients so they might benefit from and remain in treatment.
