Summary: This is an 70 minute long video stream presentation by a renowned expert researcher/clinician (Dr. Derald Wing Sue) on developing culturally appropriate intervention strategies to meet the life styles and cultural values of various ethnic/racially different clients. As back drop to his presentation Dr. Sue describes in some detail the case of Betty Lau as a way to help the viewer understand what is considered inappropriate counseling and therapy technique in working with an ethnically different client. This discussion sets the stage for his presentation on issues related to ethnicity and culture, the cultural values of various ethnic groups, as well as the various communication styles inherent in the way various ethnic groups communicate with one another. He then discusses four practice implications for working with the ethnically diverse client in counseling.
