Summary: This is a 27 minute long skills building video stream hosted by multicultural experts Drs. Patricia Arredondo and Allen Ivey of a couples counseling role-play demonstration by Michael D’Andrea (the therapist), Judy Daniels (the wife) and Brian Kim (her Korean American husband). The role-play involves the Korean American husband being referred by his physician to this therapist for chronic pain, headaches, tense muscles and gastro-intestinal complaints, and concerns by his wife about these issues. The role-play demonstrates how a white European therapist uses the multicultural counseling competencies (Awareness, Knowledge, and Skill) to effectively assist the client exploring some of the issues and challenges that affect Korean Americans living in the United States. Drs. Arredondo and Ivey host the "Debriefing” of the role-play demonstration and review with the other participants the "Learning Points” of this vignette.
